Thanks again.
In this case, at least two test failures may be due to
a problem with timeout:

    FAIL: tail-2/wait (exit: 1)
    timeout: warning: timer_create: Function not implemented
    tail: cannot open `not_here' for reading: No such file or directory
    tail: no files remaining

This one doesn't mention "timeout" explicitly,
but the test does use it.  Since that systems lacks
a version of diff, we get far-less-useful cmp output
in case of a failure like this:

    FAIL: ls/infloop (exit: 1)
    err exp-err differ: char 1, line 1

Bruno, if you ever run these tests again, would you consider
installing diff first, and maybe run the tests with a better
shell in your path?

Currently, it looks like I have easy access only to OpenBSD 4.7.
I'll see if I can reproduce any of these there.
