Hmm.  I'd have written s/validates/exercises/, but that's really me
being super nitpicky.  FWIW, even though the Autoconf test suite is
pretty large already, there are lots of bits that are not validated,
for example several error paths or unusual code path combinations;
also, nowhere do we ensure that our tests really produce the answers
that users expect on their particular system.  That's not to say that
I want to start doing this; a table of such answers would go right
against the spirit of Autoconf.

Just my two cents.
