[Buildbot-devel] Fix the permissions before starting a new build

I use the BuildBot mostly in mode=copy for my SVN checkout step, and frequently,
when a build fails in the middle of a distcheck, the `build' directory cannot be
removed by the BuildBot because the source tree produced by the autotools during
the distcheck is read-only (which is normal).

It would be great if BuildBot could chmod -R u+w the build directory before
removing it. Actually I'm doing this manually by adding a build step before the
checkout step, but I guess that many projects will end up with the same problem
so why not just change this in the BuildBot? :)
