[Gnash-dev] Dejagnu parser hell

During an IRC talk we found out that 'make check' is returning different
results even when called consecutively on a single host/buildtree.

I had similar problems in the past, then I updated the .exp file
taking care of parsing and found a stable solution, but it turns
out it's NOT stable on other people hosts.

My "expected" results for runnign 'make check' under misc-ming.all is:

# of expected passes            537
# of expected failures          13

But Udo reports far less totals, and Tom reports unconsistent totals
(different at every run).

The single entry point for these results is testsuite/simple.exp,
a TCL script using dejagnu extension.

Question is: is there a TCL hacker around willing to make it a
robust parser, or do we want to implement the parser using a
bourne shell, or perl ?
