  I don't know how it gets used, but the effect is to output a summary line
for all tests, PASSes as well as FAILs.

  Because the simulator is not remote and does not need to be accessed by

  But if the simulator really *is* not remote, wouldn't /not/ setting it be
just plain wrong?

  Well, if you don't set it, there are a whole bunch of "if [is_remote host]
{" clauses in the gcc testsuite .exp scripts that are going to be activated
and attempt to do such things as upload test files or download target headers
or gcov results from the hypothetical remote board.

  Surely that would be "something else" that was "wrong", and setting the flag
would be "the right thing to do" rather than "papering over" anything?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
