Actually, I doubt it. Reason: a number of errors show up on screen and do not
get copied into the file. Therefore, tonight I did another fresh build of
gnash and its test suite, and copied the results off the screen itself. The
results are at -- and I tried attaching it here. However, it didn't make it through.

I certainly hope that it isn't essential. I went on Ming's web site and
downloaded their version 0.4.2 and compiled that. Hopefully it's up to date

N.B.: After a careful review of your technical manual, I found it strongly
suggested there that MAKE CHECK is indeed supposed to display a number of test
files on my screen. Based on that, I'm bound to say that no part of the test
suite is working.

Compile results for that are included as well in my 232.8 KB file on my web site.
