OpenCL Build Options Test Suite

This is a collection of test cases to check how different OpenCL implementations handle build options passed to the OpenCL compiler.

Currently the only implemented test is a check for the number of build options that can be processed. This is implemented in the script Invoking the script with --help will give further details. One OpenCL implementation that shows a weak spot in that area is that of OS X Lion, which can only handle even numbers of build options if the options are given in the format -Dname. One should however be aware, however, that the OpenCL Specification only specifies the format -D name.

# Build Options      Build Result
              0      success
              1      invalid build args
              2      success
              3      invalid build args
              4      success
              5      invalid build args
              6      success

A further test that should be done, but currently isn't, is specifying include paths containing spaces, as discussed on
