The regression tester is also coughing.

I recommend we first get the regression tester back into a known good
state, then look and see if the "memory leak" problems are still around.

Right now the regression tester is failing to build mips-elf in a way that
could be related to my changes from yesterday.  Clearly I'm in the process
of trying to build mips-elf myself so that I can investigate. :-)
