AW: Question on compile & test / automake version 1.9.6 / test yacc6.tes

Dear Mr. Wildenhues,
dear listmembers,
after my yesterday's writing I found that I had had communicated a real 
problem, but the wrong cause. 

The point is:
I cannot compile successfully (or, better to say, I cannot run yacc6.test 
successfully) if I am using

make -j3

The message that comes is "foo.h" and / or "bar.h" not found. The reason (I 
guess) is the fact that the parallel processing starts compiling the main.c 
file (out of yacc6.test) *before* the header files have been created.

In contrast to my earlier writing the path addition / modification is not 
neccessary and does not help at all. To avoid this problem, I would suggest the 
following patch:

--- tests/yacc6.test
+++ tests/yacc6.test
@@ -28,6 +28,8 @@
 set -e
+export MAKE='make'
 cat > << 'END'
 AC_INIT([yacc6], [1.0])

so, whatever "MAKE" is set to, within yacc6.test it will always operate in 
single task mode. I would suggest to denote this somewhere in the automake 
documentation (I personally haven't found any comment regarding parallel 
processing, but this does not neccessarily mean anything).

Apart from this automake compiles and tests successfully, however, there is 
still a decent amount of "FAIL" messages even though the tests in total return 
"PASS". These are specifically related to check4.test, if anybody is interested 
in looking into it, I would be pleased to provide the corresponding information 
(i.e. logfiles etc.)

Take care

Dieter Jurzitza
