RE: Victory - built subversion from RH9 source rpm!

I would suggest two things:

1) I still think it MORE important for the builders of source packages
to do this than for the end users. Else what value are the source
package builders really providing?

2) If it is important for end users to run such tests (to test
correctness of configuration) then the error messages should point to
problems in the configuration, rather than the developer-centric
messages that are emitted now.

I think you've just become accustomed to the use of testsuite that is
suboptimal because there is nothing better.
