 I'm close to giving up on the automake tests.  Last night I had 3
failures in 1.12.3 - but only once I ran the tests as a user.  I had
that t/python-missing.sh and assumed it was because Python is
installed (it's my bootable system, back in chroot).  My other two
were t/lex-clean-cxx and t/lex-depend-cxx : both undefined reference
to `yylex'.

 I suppose those lex tests are SKIP for you, because LFS has not
installed flex when automake is built.

 Retried 1.12.2 as a user, with a more minimal chown - blew out
trying to write ./test-suite.log.tmp : at least one failure, but it
had scrolled out of my term's buffer.  Seemed to work the next time,
with just the two lex-*cxx failures - then I realised I had run it
as root.

 Gave it a separate run overnight, as root - again only the two lex
failures.  I differ from the book by avoiding static libs as much as
possible.  I've just finished *another* run of 1.12.2, with libl.a
and libfl.a available for use - 83 failures - most are in
t/instspc.tap [ 11,12,14,16-62, 65-70, 72-84, 87-94 ] t/instdid.sh,
t/instdir2.sh, t/insthook.sh,t/instmany.sh, and _still_ the two
lex-*-cxx tests fail.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
