I'll have a look at this soon, but if there are other folks concerned
about the operation of the git source steps, please have a look at
("the other") Dustin's changes and let us know what you think.

dustin wants you to pull from dustin/buildbot at master

Body: I pushed up a few changes I made to solve problems I ran into
with the memcached buildbot:

* Clean with -x -- This also removes ignored build artifacts to ensure
the the tree is in a pristine state and not just source-clean.

* Consider trees with .git always updateable - Before, a patch would
prevent an update and force a clobber.  This allows the clean stuff to
do the clobber without transfering a new tree everywhere.

* Always clean before a fetch - there was some complicated stuff in
here that made it not clean sometimes.

* getCommand takes a list of commands -- included a test suite for getCommand

* look for gpatch, patch - if gpatch is installed, favor it over patch
