I see the machine's been flaky in the last few days, first I couldn't
ssh to it, then it had ssh but closed the connection, then hung for a
long time & closet it. All of that was covered in the farm status page.

Now it's up but gcc/clang will emit:
    % clang --version
    xcrun: error: invalid active developer path
    (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at:

I'm unfamiliar with OSX, but some quick searching suggests that
xcode/devtools are either not installed or not properly configured:


So presumably someone's still configuring it. Just thought I'd send a
quick mail to see if I was missing something / this was the right place
for status updates etc.
