Ah, thanks.  I hacked up a gmake rule for this:

test: $(INDENT)
        cp $(srcdir)/tests/*.list .
        for testsrc in $(srcdir)/tests/*.0; do \
        test=`basename "$$testsrc" .0`; \
        ./$(INDENT) $$testsrc $$test.out -P$(srcdir)/tests/$$test.pro || echo 
FAILED >>$$test.out; \
        diff -u $$testsrc.stdout $$test.out || exit 1; \

and I'm getting one failure, which I don't understand:

--- ./tests/f_decls.0.stdout    2017-05-21 19:40:38.507303623 -0400

Does that test case pass for you?

                        regards, tom lane
