There are only two testsuite failures when running make check on Solaris
11.3 for dejagnu 1.6.3-rc1:

FAIL: dejagnu help selects dejagnu(1) manpage
FAIL: dejagnu help help selects dejagnu-help(1) manpage

They are from testsuite/launcher.all/help.exp, but unfortunately
launcher.log gives no further information but the FAILs.

That code uses Tcl's exec(n) instead of Expect, so the output does not end up in the log. A copy of the output from each launcher run is now placed in the log.

[...] Solaris man doesn't support

man <filename>

at all and there's no equivalent.  The only way seems to have the
regular directory structure with .../man/man1, then run man -M .../man

The "man <filename>" form is only used when executing "dejagnu help" from the source tree: once DejaGnu has been installed, the "man <page>" syntax will be used. These tests are now UNSUPPORTED on Solaris, since the system tools do not support a feature they need.

Besides, Solaris man doesn't support MANPAGER either, only PAGER.

I have also added that; the tests only set MANPAGER to echo(1) to ensure that the result of actually executing man(1) do not block waiting for input.

This should be fixed as of commit a8a331ee5b0953ee3ca11764e4a6e4f2af8722c9 on the dejagnu-1.6.3 branch which will be included in release candidate 2.
