[lsb-discuss] Building tests to run on Arm

We are currently switching our build environment for arm support from
armv5 to armv7 with thumb2 to take advantage of the new arm core
enhancements (up to 30% performance increases with new code set).  In
the process of upgrading our repositories, we need a way to test that
there is no abi or api breakage in the transition.  My idea was to use a
few of the LSB test suites to test before and after the core rebuild
(armv7 will still run armv5 code).  I have mirrored the lsb/devel bazaar
trees.  All of the tests appear to depend on build-env, which in turn
depends on the specdb. This is where I am currently stuck, as the
documentation (that I have found so far) is a bit limited.

I would like to know the best or easiest way to go about this.
