Tanya's right, if you want full control over what is being run, you should 
write your own test script.  If you really really want to use the nightly 
tester script, you can pass DISABLE_CBE=1 DISABLE_JIT=1 on the make 
command line to disable those runs.

If the test output claims that llc-beta fails, then your register 
allocator is producing incorrect code.  In a multisource directory, if you 
use 'make bugpoint-llc-beta' in some failing test directory, bugpoint will 
automatically reduce the failure to a smaller example for you.
