Since test #136 is one of the ones that is failing, you might try
something like this after "make check" fails:

cd tests
./testsuite -v -d 136
cd testsuite.dir/136
ls -1 | sed '/^at-/d;/^state-/d;/^config\./d' | sort

"expout" is the expected output, and the next line "at-stdout" is the
actual output.  Those lines are in "diff -u" format.  Somehow the
actual output contains a duplicate of the testsuite.log file.
It's not yet clear to me whether this is an autoconf bug or a bug
somewhere else in your system.

It's line 23 of the file tests/acprograms.at.  It attempts to test the
AC_RSH macro.  This is an obsolete macro and is no big deal but some
of the other failures with similar symptoms are a bigger deal.

<address@hidden> is the way to go.
