The typical scenario involving a loop like this where all of the loop
iterations use the same build name is on a subproject-based dashboard,
where each iteration of the loop submits to a different subproject.

In CDash's source tree, the configure handler has code like this:


So, as you can see, a configure entry for a build row only supports
showing the result of a single configure call, regardless of the value
of the APPEND flag.

For now, with existing CDash, if you want multiple configure results
to show up, you'll have to do multiple builds (call ctest_start in the
loop with a different build name for each loop iteration) or switch to
a subproject-based build, where each loop iteration uses a different
subproject value.
