I am running GNU diff, BTW.

  strings =diff | grep -i Value

yields nothing, as in your case.  I don't know where the error came from.

It look like the test passed:

: zion autoconf-2.50b/tests Thu 5 23:06; sh -x ./testsuite 26 >test.log 2>&1
echo $?
: zion autoconf-2.50b/tests Thu 5 23:06; echo $?

Attachment: test.log
Description: test results

In fact 'make check' now passes entirely:

All 154 tests were successful (3 skipped)

I don't get it.  I'll try a build from scratch to see if that has a
similar failure.  Do you think there's some kind of race condition, or
maybe gamma rays???

I'll let you know if I see the failure again.
