Redoing the tests with 1.16g I now have 9 failed tests, the testsuite.log is attached.
Thanks much for giving it a whirl right away. But are those failures anything new? FAIL: t/fn99subdir FAIL: t/lex-clean-cxx FAIL: t/lex-depend-cxx FAIL: t/test-extensions-empty FAIL: t/subpkg FAIL: t/subpkg2 FAIL: t/subpkg3 FAIL: t/subpkg-yacc FAIL: t/vala-mix2 They don't look like anything that was touched in these small changes since 1.16.4; the only real purpose for the release is to get back to the historical Python directory behavior. At least the lex/yacc stuff hasn't worked with Solaris tools for quite a while. There are a number of open bugs relating to Solaris at https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/pkgreport.cgi?package=automake#_0_4_3 but no one has come forward to look into them. (They will never make it to the top of my list to work on, sorry to say.) Thanks again, Karl
