Hum, kinda makes be wish we had all the xfail files for the release branches 
and trunk for all primary and secondary platforms and that make check did 
something more intelligent.  :-)  One advantage, people doing day to day work, 
would rarely have to do two make check runs, as they could do just one and do 
the analysis against the checked in file.  They would only have to do two, if 
the file isn't up-to-date.

So, I guess the question is, is there a down side to doing that?  I can imagine 

        if [ -r "$srcdir/contrib/testsuite-management/$target.xfail ]; then
                $srcdir/contrib/testsuite-management/validate_failures.py bla 

added into make check somewhere.
