Make the --fast option to validate faster, and add --normal

The --fast option now disables the following:
  - dynamic libs
  - bindist and bindisttest

Which knocks several minutes off validate for me, but it's still over
30 minutes using 5 cores on 64-bit Linux.

Usual caveats apply: if you're using --fast, then make sure you aren't
doing anything that might destabilise dynamic libs or binary dists.
