Hello Tom,

You mention several issues:
- test hangs of
|   92: torture.at:134     AC_CONFIG_FILES, HEADERS, LINKS and COMMANDS
|  221: acprograms.at:20   AC_PROG_SED

- apparently very long build and install times.

You mention LINUX, but I am not certain whether that is the system you
build on.

Please tell us something about your system, architecture, operating
system, rough age (speed), send the config.log file, the files
  tests/testsuite.dir/220/testsuite.log  (in your changed numbering)

of which the first one was probably overwritten by the next testsuite
run.  In that case please undo your changes to tests/torture.at, and run
   make check TESTSUITEFLAGS='-v -d -x 92 221' 2>&1 | tee check-log

and post check-log.  Probably you'll have to do this once for test 92
and once for 221 separately, if they hang.

On GNU/Linux, a build of Autoconf takes on the order of a few seconds,
and a full testsuite run takes a quarter of an hour, on a modern system.
OTOH, on an AIX system, the testsuite can take several hours with bash
as CONFIG_SHELL, and days with /bin/sh.

FWIW, it's always better to send bug reports to the appropriate mailing
list than to a personal email address, just like you did.

Cheers, and thanks for the report,
