I can see immediately that most of the failures on your OpenBSD system are 
by not having a GNU M4 installed on the path for libtoolize.  I should have 
been a
lot more vocal about that change rather than hiding it in the 2.4.3 release 
as it has tripped a lot of people up.  The latest master revision now checks 
for a
suitable M4 at configure time, and complains if there is nothing suitable on 
command search PATH, which I think will help.

May I ask if you would kindly rerun then test suite on that machine and reply 
with a
link to the updated logs, after having installed GNU M4 first of course :)

On OpenBSD 5.6, with GNU M4 installed as "/usr/local/bin/gm4",

Building the latest git ( ) from a tarball (that is, "git clone && bootstrap && configure && make 
dist" on a GNU/Linux box, then "configure && make && make check" on the OpenBSD VM), two tests fail:
  33: demo.at:548        hardcoding library path
      libtoolize automake autoconf
 101: old-ltdl-iface.at:35 Makefile.inc
      libtoolize automake autoconf

log here:

When bootstrapping on the OpenBSD VM (i.e. "git clone && bootstrap etc") there 
are more errors, indicating perhaps some bad code generation?

$ make check
32: force non-PIC objects                          
/tmp/libtool/tests/testsuite.dir/at-groups/32/test-source[70]: syntax error:
