Changes in v2:

* Updated compilation failure message to read "failed to compile".
* Replaced all other compilation failure messages with the same standard
  message of "failed to compile", except when the original message contained
  meaningful context information. For example, "failed to compile shared library"
  or "failed to compile in C++ mode" etc.

---

Another bit of cleanup to the testsuite. We have a number of tests that are
not honoring the rule of not outputting their own name as a test name.

I fixed up all the offenders i could find with the following regular
expression:

"(xfail|kfail|kpass|fail|pass|unsupported|untested) ([A-Za-z0-9]+|\\\$(.)*testfile(.)*)\.exp$"

OK?

Duplicate test message.  Write something like:

  untested "failed to compile shared library 1"
  untested "failed to compile shared library 2"

Another example (though unlike the above, this case was already
duplicate):

    untested "failed to compile first test case"

    untested "failed to compile in-system-call test"


There are likely more instances in the patch.  Since you're now reusing the same
string on all tests, I think it should be easy to grep (+sort+uniq)
for "failed to compile" to catch them.  Could you do that?

Thanks,
Pedro Alves
