So I was doing some refactoring work, and ran the test suites to see if 
nothing broke.  It turned out that I got a single failure in 
test/cg/variants/tnofalvarol.pp - seems a little odd because my changes 
weren't meant to change the output of binary files in any way.  But 
looking at the test in question, all I get is a wall of $include 
definitions.  Running it in Lazarus isn't too helpful either because the 
stack trace doesn't reveal where the erroneous line is, only that seven 
levels down, an error occurs in "destructor tdynarrayiter.done;" in the 
variants unit, but doesn't know which line exactly - exception 
EVariantError with message: "Invalid variant type cast".

I suppose what I'm trying to get at is that this test is not very 
self-contained and is very hard to debug if it happens to fail, and I 
would consider rewriting or replacing it.
