Pfff!  :)

|     FAILED near `torture.at:163'

That's really weird.  Actually working on Autoconf's test suite is a
bizarre exercise where you keep on discovering surprising things...

| : zion autoconf-2.50b/tests Thu 5 23:36; ls /usr/local/dejagnu/bin
| expect*  runtest*  tclsh*

Hm...  I fail to understand how it could have some influence on
anything here...

src/ace/tests % egrep -w 'expect|runtest|tclsh' testsuite        nostromo 10:07
src/ace/tests %                                                  nostromo Err 1

Well, it would be extremely useful if you could find out what's wrong,
since we do have problems with the test suite: it is not always
deterministic, and I still don't understand why :(

For a start, I'd like to know whether:
1. you run Solaris
2. what happens with PATH=/nonexistent:$PATH make check
