All --

I re-factored some of the code today to [finally] split out the test
source stuff into a new phase named "test get" (analogous to the "mpi
get" phase). This allowed for some nice code consolidation in some
places, and more importantly, is another step towards supporting
disconnected scenarios.

See samples/sample.ini for some examples of the [Test get:] phase.
The point is that you can specify where the test suite sources are
located and they get downloaded once and cached (just like the MPI
sources). This phase also has its own command line switch on the
"mtt" client ("--get-test").

Previously, we mixed both obtaining the test suites and building the
test suites in the "test build" phase. Now they're properly split
apart into two phases. So if you have old .ini files, you can
generally create new [test get:] sections with the sources from your
[test build:] sections and it'll be ok. See sample.ini for examples.

I unfortunately just realized that I did the linkage from the "test
get" phase to the next phase ("test build") entirely wrong. :-(

So if you're trying to build or run any tests with the SVN head, it
just won't work. You might want to roll back to before my big commit
from this afternoon (r158 should be safe). I'll fix the head either
later tonight or tomorrow morning. Sorry folks...

And crud, as I was typing out this mail, I realized that the mtt
command line options are the opposite wording of the INI file phase
names (e.g., "[MPI install:]" vs. --install-mpi). Tomorrow, I'm
going to change the mtt command line options to be the other way
around (--mpi-get, --mpi-install, --test-get, ...etc.). Blah!
