Hi Steve,

This was changed around about
The motivation behind the change was to get the CI system to have the
same setup as developers I think, and to avoid regressions in 3.1
which had been causing some build problems at the time. Those same
regressions are the ones causing us issues now.

Interestingly, the commit which was identified as causing the issue
occurred back in March, yet this thread was in June. So perhaps there
may be other commits interacting here (or that was the time when the
commit previously identified was merged into the next branch).
