If you want something like this, you will first need to explain it.

Again, CVS's current test suite often compares program output against shell variables defined earlier in the script.

A simple example of this is that CVS uses a configure option, provided by Autoconf, to allow setting of the program prefix (AC_PROGRAM_PREFIX). This can alter CVS's $0 and thus its error messages. If AC_CHECK doesn't escape the STDOUT & STDERR strings then variables like this can be passed in for comparison.
