What I found by running runtest by hand is it fails if the file site.ext exists.

Your site.exp file is invalid; this is a bug in Automake rather than a bug in DejaGnu. The version of Automake that produced the Makefile.in that you are using mishandles filenames containing spaces. Tcl requires a value containing spaces to be properly quoted in a "set" command, and Automake is producing a site.exp that does not contain those quotes for the objdir variable.

An immediate workaround is to run `sed -e '/^set [^ ]*dir [^"]/{s/dir /&"/;s/$/"/}' -i site.exp` (tested with GNU sed) to fix your site.exp file, or to avoid building in a directory where the absolute filename contains spaces.

Additionally, as of commit b53b22c29880f785ae5e9e1c72925d2583a4c76d (after 1.6.2 was released) DejaGnu no longer loads site.exp when invoked with the --version option.

Please try regenerating your Makefile.in with a newer Automake or report this as a bug in Automake if you are already using the latest version.

I am closing this report as NOTOURBUG.
