Now that I've done some testing here, I realize that we need some way
to turn off the push-nightlies step while still enabling the creation
of the bibisect repositories. For example, I don't want to bother with
pushing nightlies, especially when I'm testing my commits locally. To
fix I've reordered the day-checking guts of do_push() so that we do
our nightly check first, then call do_bibisect_push(), then (if
pushing nightlies is enabled), call Both parts are
included in the same tinbuild "phase," but can be enabled

Based on the discussion in this thread it sounds like we're pretty
close with an opt/ directory and make dev-install, but we might need
an unpack step for at least OS/Darwin (and maybe for Windows?). To
address these issues (and per suggestion), I've moved the code that
handles finding the opt/ directory, make-install, copying, etc.. into where we can further override it in
platform-specific files such as

The script is set up to create two local repos:
'bibisect-repository' and 'fake-remote'. All of the git operations,
even the so-called "remote" operations, happen locally on your box, so
it's perfect for fast testing (or when you don't have much/any upload
bandwidth! :-)

Here's how I create the repos and test the system:

(in the LO checkout)
../buildbot/bin/tinbuild2 -0vx -m debug -p bob

Norbert -- if you have a OSX buildbot available and can help figure
out the darwin-specific pieces, that would be very helpful. I hope
that all we'll have to do is make a darwin version of
copy_build_into_bibisect_repository(). I've just stubbed-in a basic
version, but I really need a mac to test it on -- see the patches for
details, and let me know what works and what needs fixing :-)
