Thanks for the idea.  Definitely with this fix it's gonna work the way
I want, but I prefer the "faked success" approach to this one.  Well,
I am a bit of a purist, I guess.  Thanks for the piece of code you

I hoped that I missed something when reading docs: a command-line
option to Automake (something similar to Make's "-k"), an Autoconf
macro like AM_TESTFAILURE, or an option for the AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS
variable.  Perhaps a good way of extending Automake would be to add
this functionality?

Thanks & best,
