This test fails with distcheck and not with check. My diagnosis is
that it fails because with distcheck the source tree is read only, and
therefore the `depcomp' which is imported by tests/defs is read only

so when it comes to this snippet of subdir4.fig:
| # With depcomp here at the top level, automake prior to 2000-08-06
| # would mistakenly give the following diagnostic:
| # automake: configure.in: required file `lib/depcomp' not found
| : > depcomp
| ../../tests/subdir4.test: depcomp: Permission non accordée
| FAIL: subdir4.test
So I'd like to apply this patch:
from Akim Demaille <address@hidden>
* subdir4.test (depcomp): Don't create it, defs does.

SUBDIRS = lib src
but the problem is that Jim made this on purpose I guess since:
| 2000-08-06 Jim Meyering <address@hidden>
| * Makefile.am (TESTS): Add subdir4.test.
| * subdir4.test: New test for the just-fixed depcomp failure.
| 2000-03-19 Tom Tromey <address@hidden>
| * libobj2.test: Put depcomp into subdir.
| * confsub.test: Put depcomp into subdir.
| * defs: Always copy `depcomp'.
his introduction of subdir4.test was made after that `defs' copies
`depcomp'. Since I don't understand too well what was your intention,
Jim, I didn't apply it. But with this patch, Automake checks and
