I think the best way to deal with this in the short term is to output the 
date stamp of the "cc1" program in llvm-gcc.  If we output the date in the 
Dejagnu test results section, it would be easy to see that for a CFE of 
date N, all C{++}Frontend tests dated > N can be expected to fail.

Eventually, the CFE will be split off to run as a proper project, and the 
tests will be distributed with it.  I don't think anyone is planning on 
working on this though.

BTW, I added a line to the shell script we use to update the 
NightlyTest.pl file from CVS before running it.  This might be a useful 
addition to your script (to avoid making you update it when the .pl file
