Make sure that you check out smbtorture (in the tarball, but you might
have missed it) and look at the scripts I have in the
testsuite/build_farm subdir.  Currently they don't work without a full
build farm setup (build.samba.org, source in CVS) but they give you a
small idea where to start.   I think that sombody was going to rework it
into a sane testsuite at some stage...
