Can you run each of these like this (e.g.)?

    make check VERBOSE=t TESTS='lex3.text'

That might help me find out what is wrong.
Unfortunately I don't have ready access to a Cygwin box to do this

Okay, I've run the verbose checks -- but on the version of automake that was built when I had autoconf-2.52 installed (2.52 was also installed as I ran the tests). Recall that in *this* configuration, the failures were:


So, I ran the verbose tests on THOSE, not the ones in the earlier list. I can reinstall autoconf-2.13, rebuild automake, and run the tests specified in the earlier list if you want.

Some notes about the results for the current (autoconf-2.52-based) failures:

ccnoco -- reported on other platforms as "works with autoconf-2.13, breaks with 2.52" Same here.

libtool2 -- I don't have libtool installed; this test looks for "libtoolize" within the build directory. Is that significant? I have just finished building libtool (*); I can install it, and rebuilt/retest automake if you think that's a good idea.

(*) the libtool build was mostly successful -- it had three test failures of its own: dry-run, build-relink, and quote, as well as a skipped 'build-relink2' test. I think this is because not all of the windows-dll-isms have been worked out (cygwin is a unix emulation layer that runs on MSWindows)

subdir5 -- when I ran the verbose test, I got "Expected Failure" NOT "unexpected pass". I don't know why the results were different between the non-verbose and verbose runs.
