possibility to link to external log files from generated JUnit test reports.

information needed to find out which events led up to the failure of a test. This patch enables
developers to use the 'junitreport' generated JUnit reports to click through to the log file
associated with the execution of a single test.

log files from the test results.
> If no prefix or postfix values are used the report generator will assume the test class
name is the name of the log file. 
> If a logfile cannot be found this will be silently ignored and no link to the logfile
will appear in the resulting JUnit report.
> When a link to a log file does appear it is formatted in the same way as links to stdour
or stderr are formatted.

it. Please reply and i will send the patch ready to be applied.
