Yep, they're passing again, thanks:

Thanks, added the "make check" test.  I don't know if you plan to have
the test suite launch X clients in the future, but I added it to the set
of tests that is run against the newly-built libraries/server/drivers at
the end of every tinderbox build, so launching clients will work if you
want to.  Here's the current set of tests used after every build run:


Here are the latest test results for the "construct" tinderbox machine:

(Hm, it says "0 tests passed" for libxcb; any idea what's up with that?)

   > Running the X Test Suite would be awesome too.

I'll take a look at the X Test Suite -- I haven't used it before.
If there are any other suggestions for test programs to run against
new builds of servers/drivers, I'd be happy to hear those too.
