I've just did my usual build and test, i prefer to run tahoe from
where i built it from usually, anyway here are the notes...

archlinux (updated to as of yesterday at some point), I had previously
installed tahoe from the AUR but it's a bit broken for 1.8.1 due to
twisted being too new (10.2 i think) and foolscap is too old (0.5), I
manually updated foolscap on my own archlinux system and all the tests
passed after i did the foolscap update.

osx 10.6.6 - with the stock python install (i removed macports from my
path), all the tests passes, since it just downloads all its own

winxp sp3 - with python27, mingw (and associated stuff etc, just
followed the wiki from a few months back) it all builds, downloads its
dependancies and the tests passed, though i have not used the windows
build for anything but simple testing as a client and not as a storage
node etc...
