this is because you have /uhome/src/gnu/libtool-head in the $PATH, the
beginning of testsuite.log reveals that.  Why is that, did you add that

Something in 'make check' must be putting it there since it is certainly not anything I did. Perhaps automake does this in order to find its scripts? It would be much safer to invoke any subordinate scripts using full paths. Unfortunately, Windows does not observe case. As evaluated by 'ls -l' in msys, the INSTALL file has permissions "-rw-r--r--" so it should not be accidentally executed. However, if I pass /uhome/src/gnu/libtool-head/INSTALL to msys on the command line, it is indeed executed. The same happens with Cygwin. Perhaps since the execute bits are quite unreliable under Windows, any file is deemed executable.

This is the path setting in the shell that invoked the tests:

Bob address@hidden ~/mingw/libtool-head
$ echo $PATH
