The POSIX standard to which DejaGnu conforms does not allow for a SKIP
result.  I have modified the development code here to issue
UNSUPPORTED instead of FAIL, since the problem we are seeing is not as
a result of a software defect.

However, in my opinion your environment configuration is broken.
Having the current directory on your $PATH is a bad idea.

I have not yet checked these changes into CVS as savannah.gnu.org is
not currently accepting connections on its SSH port (at least, not
connections from me).
