I'm curious on what the intent of having the -k parameter in make -k check.
To this point in time I always thought it was to continue with the tests even
after unexpected test failures. But after removing the -k, the only error I got early on was
autogen -T ../../fixincludes/check.tpl ../../fixincludes/inclhack.def
make: autogen: Command not found
which caused an early halt.
With autogen installed, make check seemed to complete all the tests even though not all of them were successful.
I feel that this should be clarified.
BTW, Arch has the following
# Do not run fixincludes
sed -i 's@\./fixinc\.sh at -c true@' gcc/Makefile.in
Not sure what the purpose of this is since it still tries to execute autogen.
