This is my understanding too. This probably can be fixed in atconfig.
It's not that hard.

Look at the first test, tools.at:108. Search for
configure.ac:7:TRACE2:active::ACTIVE in testsuite. It's followed by $at_c.

By the way, the testsuite should either fail if both -n and \c don't work
or eliminate dependency on at_c and at_n in the actual tests. Funny
output is fine, but failing AT_CHECK is not.
