I broke some things in some work I did yesterday.  I've fixed it now.

It should not take that long.  Perhaps 3 hours for all the trees?

Yes.  We should setup a new 'environment' in the selftest code of
'dc-openldap' and 'dc-fds', much like the current 'dc' and 'member',
then we can run the domain controller tests against these extra

Well, the idea would be to move away from those environment variables

But for a quick change, if you set those manually in the build_test
script, then your build farm host will run the LDAP backend testsuite.
