There is a bunch of things we don't test in a way that shows up 
obviously, if at all. I'm thinking of making a buildfarm enhancement 
that will allow performance of optional steps with some extra timing and 
branch params. Obvious candidates include building the docs, looking for 
typedefs, and benchmark runs as per Greg's post yesterday. The extra 
config would look something like:

     optional_steps => {
          find_typedefs => { branches => ['HEAD'], min_hours_since => 23 },
          benchmark => {dow => [0,2], min_hour => 3, max_hour => 6 },
          build_docs => {min_hours_since => 72},
     },

Adding a docs build to the buildfarm would at least show up errors like 
the one you found pretty quickly. It's going to have to be optional, 
though, as by no means does everyone have the required toolset installed.

cheers
