    I've now made build attempts for recutils-1.1 and recutils-1.2 in
    our test lab with about 25 flavors of Unix covering all of the major
    CPU architectures.  This report covers only recutils-1.2.

Wow, many thanks! :)  The report is extremely useful.
    (1) on Solaris 10 (x86, x86_64), FreeBSD (x86), NetBSD (x86), and SGI
        IRIX (MIPS), compilations fail like this:
        runtests.c:65: error: `CK_ENV' undeclared (first use in this function)
        By contrast, compilations (and tests) on Solaris SPARC succeed.

This one is pretty strange.  The CK_ENV constant shall be provided by
    (2) on GNU/Linux IA-64 (Red Hat 5.6), the final report says "1 of 8
        tests failed", with this snippet from the preceding output:
          recins-external-descriptor error (see recins-external-descriptor.err)
        FAIL: recins.sh
        % cat ./torture/utils/recins-external-descriptor.err
        recins: error: operation aborted due to integrity failures.
        recins: error: use --verbose to get a detailed report.
        recins: error: use --force to skip the integrity check.

This was probably due to an unitialized local variable bug that is in
1.2.  Fixed in the git repo.
        I suggest that the test should be rerun automatically with
        --verbose if it fails: it is not obvious how I can do so manually,
        without detailed study of the Makefile tree.

Good idea.  I will implement that in testutils.sh.

    (3) On GNU/Linux PowerPC-32 and PowerPC-64 (both Gentoo 1.12.14)
        systems, four major tests fail:
        However, all 75 of the torture/utils/*.err files are EMPTY.

The utilities appear to be returning the wrong exit code... Some
debugging is in order.  Can you provide me access to those systems?
    (4) on MirBSD 10 x86, 2 major tests fail:

Also empty .err files?    
    (5) on Mac OS X PowerPC and x86_64, compilation fails:
        rec-type/rec-type-descr-type.c:29:20: error: malloc.h: No such
        file or directory
