Actually, there is a much simpler approach: since 'AM_COLOR_TESTS'
is *not* set in the automake-generated Makefiles, it is possible to
override it from the environment *without* using the '-e' option
of make.  So, to solve your problem (and at the same time make the
test unconditionally more robust) just drop the '-e' from the make
call :-)

Will you take care of reworking the patch, or should I do it?
