I do not have NRWT, but from my previous experience of running layout tests,
i've looked in to old-run-webkit-tests and there is no special logic in the
script that will change by looking at the word Cairo.

I am not so sure if layout tests need information about whether its cairo or
skia, but looks like the script  is not taking them in to account. may be
ERIC can answer this.

My gut feel is, script needs "cairo" knowledge only for build and i think
that is enough for layout tests to get the respective platform results.
