This has more to do with the CTest clients that are submitting to CDash.

In this specific case, these two builds reuse the same source directory.
The MySQL build runs first, so it gets all the updates.  Hence the Postgres
build always reports zero files changed.

Some other projects no longer call ctest_update() at all.  Instead they
rely on another tool (Jenkins, buildbot, etc) to update the repository.  In
this case it's harder for CDash to know what files were modified.
