Just a heads up in case any other buildbot maintainers are looking to
switch to use cmake on their bots...
I switched one of the powerpc64 buildbots to use cmake and the runs
failed with a really strange error (it couldn't figure out the size of
pointers). After a lot of experimenting I finally figured out that the
problem was with ninja. The source files that were being used to figure
out system settings were weird gibberish instead of actual program text.
I built and installed a new version of ninja (1.6) to replace the system
one (v220.127.116.11) and now everything works.
