OK, I'll send an updated patch this weekend to do that.

I switched back to a decent email client, so the attachment should be OK
this time.

+  @ovar{run-if-fail}, @ovar{run-if-pass})
+Initialize and execute an Erlang module named @var{module} that performs
+tests following the @var{test-spec} EUnit test specification.
address@hidden must be a valid EUnit test specification, as defined in
+the @uref{http://@/, EUnit
+Reference Manual}.  @var{erlflags} are optional command-line options
+passed to the Erlang interpreter to execute the test Erlang module.
+Typically, @var{erlflags} defines at least the paths to directories
+containing the compiled Erlang modules under test, as @samp{-pa path1
+path2 ...}.
+For example, the unittests associated with Erlang module @samp{testme},
+which compiled code is in subdirectory @file{src}, can be performed
+AT_CHECK_EUNIT([testme_testsuite], address@hidden, address@hidden,
+               [-pa "address@hidden@}/src"])
address@hidden example
+This macro must be invoked in between @code{AT_SETUP} and @code{AT_CLEANUP}.
+If @var{test-spec} is an invalid EUnit test specification, the test
+group fails.  Otherwise, if the EUnit test passes, shell commands
address@hidden are executed or, if the EUnit test fails, shell
+commands @var{run-if-fail} are executed and the test group fails.
+The @code{ERL}, @code{ERLC}, and (optionally) @code{ERLCFLAGS} variables
+must be defined as the path of the Erlang interpreter, the path of the
+Erlang compiler, and the command-line flags to pass to the compiler,
+respectively.  Those variables should be configured in
address@hidden, typically using the @command{AC_ERLANG_PATH_ERL}
+and @command{AC_ERLANG_PATH_ERLC} macros in @file{}, and the
+configured values of those variables are automatically defined in the
+Only the generated test Erlang module is automatically compiled and
+executed.  If @var{test-spec} involves testing other Erlang modules,
+e.g. module @samp{testme} in the example above, those modules must be
+compiled explicitly.
+If the testsuite is run in verbose mode, with option @option{--verbose},
+EUnit is also run in verbose mode to output more details about
+individual unittests.
