I have the Linux64 bb set up to do a clobber on the source tree.  This 
means that it tests the build from scratch - and we don't miss stuff 
because incremental builds are so much easier and quicker.  My 
preference is to leave that build that way.
I have many steps in the process set up to continue after fail - 
bootstrap was not set that way, because if it does not download 
properly, that is normally catastrophic to the build.  I think it needs 
to stay that way.
I am fine with the build being broken while we sort this out - we need 
to fix this in a stable way.
