14.1.2 When tests fail

When the tests in the old test suite are run via make check, output is caught in per-test ‘tests/test-name.log’ files and summarized in the ‘test-suite.log’ file. The exit status of each program tells the ‘Makefile’ whether or not the test succeeded.

If a test fails, it means that there is either a programming error in libtool, or in the test program itself.

To investigate a particular test, you may run it directly, as you would a normal program. When the test is invoked in this way, it produces output that may be useful in determining what the problem is.

The new, Autotest-based test suite produces as output a file ‘tests/testsuite.log’ which contains information about failed tests.

You can pass options to the test suite through the make variable TESTSUITEFLAGS (see The Autoconf Manual in The Autoconf Manual).
