Hi Roland,

The optionlist used by the build and test system is in https://bitbucket.org/ianhinder/cactusjenkins/src/ (called build.cfg) and you now have commit access.  

The change appears to be backward-compatible; please feel free to commit it if this is the case.

Sorry, I didn't realise that this had happened.  The build nodes are all supposed to be identical; if we update one of them for testing, it should be taken out of the pool.  Once the testing node is working, we should update the other nodes as well.
