Tender loving care.  It could be done better, but no one's 
looking to improve it.

It means, can Cirrus CI actually build gdc and run through the 
testsuite without being killed by the pipeline?

Travis CI for instance is rubbish, because:
- Hardware is really slow.
- Kills jobs that take longer than 50 minutes.
- Kills jobs if a 3GB memory limit is exceeded.
- Kills jobs that don't print anything for more than 10 minutes.
- Truncates logs to first 2000 lines.

There's also buildkite [1] and repo [2] (which has been failing 
since the ARM bare metal servers got taken down).

We can take this to D.gnu instead. :-)
