How about the following as the final version?

Changes in v3:

- Adjusted some testcases where the message "failed to compile" was not unique.

Changes in v2:

- Addressed comments from reviewers.
- Fixed spurious whitespaces.
- Changed compilation failure messages that included source/binary paths to
  ones that are short and deterministic.

---

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?
