  Sorry about that, the manual is probably a bit more reference like, than
a tutorial.

  There are two site.exp files. Both are optional, but by using one, you
get away from needing to specify lots of command line arguments. One goes in
the local directory, and is usually produced by the Makefile. (look in
dejagnu/examples/calc/) This lets you run "runtest" with no options.

  For cross testing, there is a global site.exp file, pointed to by the DEJAGNU
environment variable. This file has company wide settings for things like
what serial port a target board is plugged into, what the baud rate is, etc...
This is required for cross testing.

  No. This file has to be produced by the end user.

  There is a file that usually goes in your testsuite/config that is used
to connect runtest to your target board.
