[Bug-dejagnu] dejagnu-1.4 "make check"

I picked up dejagnu-1.4 and tried installing it on my NetBSD 1.5

After doing "configure" and "make", but before installing, I tried
"make check".  It printed warnings because it couldn't find "runtest",
and finished up with a zero exit status.  This should, IMHO, be
considered a fatal error.  And if it's meant to be testing the new
version of runtest, it should specify the path to it.  (It wasn't
clear to me if it was looking for runtest to drive a test suite, in
which case you'd want an installed version, or to test the one it
found, in which case, it shouldn't need to be installed.)

I installed and put the bin directory into $PATH, and tried "make
check" again.  It got a nonzero exit status because the calc test
reported a failure.  Which, near as I can tell, was the intended
effect because calc has an intentional bug.  So, as a test of calc, it
should be a failure, but as a test of dejagnu, it should be a success.

If this target isn't intended to be used as a test of the new version
of dejagnu before installation, with a zero exit status being the
indicator of a successful run of the test, then it should be called
something other than "check".
