@Benabik Benabik frontend: Be pessimistic about arguments
The code to handle -o added two arguments to the final array.
However, longopt allows "-o file" to also be passed as
"--output=file".  This causes one argument to cause two to be added.
This means that we can't have the destination array be the same size
as the original.

I've decided to use the most pessimistic case for allocation, one
where every argument causes two to be added (parrot --output=file1
--output=file2 etc).  Alternative solutions include passing it as
"-o=file" instead and having prt0 handle breaking it apart, but this
is the fastest way to fix the memory overrun.

@leto leto [ci] Test plain builds instead of ccache
We weren't getting a lot of ROI out of testing ccache vs. non-ccache
builds, i.e. I have never seen a ccache/non-ccache build pair have
different behaviors.

Much better to test a "plain" parrot compile for each compiler, which
means we turn off every possible flag. This tends to catch
test failures where tests have not been properly skipped if Parrot was
not compiled with the feature turned on.

This has the added benefit of using fewer resources on Travis CI and
running faster.
