The bug producing bad "make check" results in dejagnu-1.4.4.tar.gz
should not have been in the release file. Responsible releases should
compile, not abend with errors, and after compilation they should "make
check" without a lot of errors. If you have a good installation of GNU
make, GNU m4, very recent autogen, autoconf and automake, a recent GCC,
good current tcl, tk and expect, your dejagnu source should compile and
test with no compile errors and few "make check" errors. It's a mature
program that should not have problems.

Bitching doesn't solve the problem. "make check" works just fine on both my up-to-date Fedora 11 and Ubuntu Jaunty & Karmic systems from trunk.

But when you compile and test your dejagnu tarball, you find that it
tests awfully. The scripts and maybe the makefiles of it need debugging.
It previously worked.

  Previously when ? 1.4.4 went out years ago...

Dejagnu is needed to test new GCC versions among other key programs.

Yes, we realize that, which is why DejaGnu goes a long time between releases to stay relatively stable.
