Not that I know of.

Anyone know what the motivation behind creating checkeq was?  Was it
just that eqn was slow in those days, or that eqn had poor error

If so, it might be worth just trying `eqn "$@" >/dev/null' in a checkeq
shell script to see if that satisfies your user.  Let us know if this
is sufficient, or if not, what things it fails to help with.
