I istalled  DejaGnu from your last release 1.4.2  on a pc with SuSE 7.1 Linux OS.
After configuring  whith ./configure --prefix=PREFIX (my install dir)
and doing a "make install" the test  by runnung "make check"
did not pass all tests.  It failed in
Running  ./testsuite/runtest.all/stats.exp ...

The reason for that was that the step
runtest --outdir /usr1/tmp/hvogt/dejagnu/dejagnu-1.4.2/testsuite/tmpdir STATS_TEST=fail stats-sub.exp
gives the message (verbose mode):
Illegal Argument "STATS_TEST=fail" .
Tracing back this behaviour I found that the runtest.exp script did not handle Tcl  variables in the way expected.
Addding after the line 1166 in runtest.exp the lines
       "[A-Z0-9_-.]*=*" { # process makefile style args like CC=gcc, etc...
        #  Already parsed.
I could pass the test.

One additional action which for me was necessary before running "make check":
I had to add to my PATH environment variable the path to $PREFIX/bin to avoid
messages like
ERROR: Can't find runtest
