Yes, I believe Ralph runs that way a lot.

Done; thanks.

Patches welcome.  :-)

We have no easy way to save the configure command line, unfortunately.  
configure slurps off a lot of the command line before the first line of 
configure.ac is executed (so to speak).

We were really thinking about a generalized version of the Cisco scripts for 
#167 -- this wouldn't need the AlreadyInstalled module.

See ompi-tests/cisco/mtt/usnic/nightly.pl.  It's kinda grotty and very 
Cisco-specific.  A nicer/cleaner/more general version of the ideas in that 
script would be great.
