I agree that dejagnu is a mess.  When I first started using it, I
thought that it would become the standard testing framework for all
GNU software, and that it would be improved and maintained in a
reasonable way.  But that doesn't seem to have happened.
Unfortunately, I don't have time to work on implementing something
different or better, or even to fix the tests so that they will work
with other versions of dejagnu (they work for me, at least for now).
So if things are going to change, someone else will have to do the work,
and do it in a way that doesn't require a lot of time from me to
install the patches.
