I've run the test last night to see how long it takes, and I can
afford to cronjob it for the night.

I didn't quite realize it would automatically send the report, but
it did [1] and there are a few test failure from the
Frontend{C,C++} directories.  I suppose this is because I have
llvm-gcc4.0 2.1 installed, which might need to be upgraded.  Is
there a specific version of llvm-gcc that is prefered for nightly
tests?  Shall I go with the latest stable one?  4.0 or 4.2?

What does -enable-linscan do?  It's not referenced anywhere in
NewNightlyTest.pl, but it's given as example in [2].

I will also take the freedom to disable the nightly test if I need
the CPU cycles for something else during a night.
