Comment (by pierre.labastie):

 I have had a hard time with tests. The test harness is rather complicated,
 with some using dejagnu and some using custom test programs. This makes
 the output almost impossible to read. A lot of subdirectories in the tree
 have their own tests, and those are runned recursively. Two directories
 have tests which fail:[[BR]]
 -one is testing the libdb2 plugin. It uses the dictionary installed for
 cracklib, but since that dictionary contains shell metacharacters and
 spaces, the test fails. If another dictionary is given, the first test
 passes and all the others hang... Those tests can be eliminated with a sed
 to Makefile in that directory.[[BR]]
 -one is using dejagnu for testing kdb. There are some wrong assumptions
 about the output (xst command echo), which make about fifty tests fail. It
 is possible to have those tests pass with a sed to default.exp. I do not
 know whether it is worth it.
