Allow use of SB-RT's mechanism for expected test failures in contribs
... In RT, use the list of expected test failures not just for debugging output, but return as a primary result only whether there are unexpected failures, with additional result values for details on expected failures. ... Tweak make-target-contrib.sh so that the `test-passed' file, if non-empty, can indicate a `successful' build of the contrib with only known failures. This mechanism is meant to follow in the footsteps of SBCL's main test suite's mechanism for known failures, and is arguably not in the original spirit of contribs as user contributions that must build perfectly or fail to install entirely. However, for parts of contrib/ which are very commonly used as a part of SBCL, it is hoped that this new mechanism will aid work toward bug fixes in those contribs rather than de-emphasize it.
