  This should be a fatal error. I haven't seen this behaviour on any
of the machines I tested 1.4 on, but I'll try to reproduce it. "make check"
is supposed to be a quite sanity test of DejaGnu before installation. I
rewrote most of the DejaGnu testsuite for the 1.4 release, but it looks
like I need to tweak it alittle more...

  Usually the RUNTEST support in Automake, and many other GNU programs
tests to see whether if should use a local runtest, or the installed one.

  Correct. I'll fix this. Thanks for the feedback. Other than this, does
it run tests (like lets say the GCC tests) on NetBSD ok ?
