but is there a market for it?  AFAIK, people use ``make check'' to
test the just built program.  Does anyone try to move the autotest
generated script somewhere else?

If I copy Autoconf's tests/testsuite to a new directory and run it
there, I get:

## ------------------------------ ##
## GNU Autoconf 2.59d test suite. ##
## ------------------------------ ##

Executables (autoheader, autoupdate...).

  1: Syntax of the shell scripts                   skipped (tools.at:49)
  2: Syntax of the Perl scripts                    FAILED (tools.at:74)
  3: autom4te cache                                ok

Not very encouraging.  Perhaps no one has tried this before.
What is atconfig good for, shouldn't it be moved together with

... and the other way round: if we don't see any advantage in having
the test script as a single file, we won't caare.  ;-)

Actually, the atconfig file seems to indicate that your concept has
been silently broken long ago...

Have a nice day,
