I know, but I am trying to qualify a release, and from my perspective,
this is a known issue that is not blocking the release. So they are
a visual distraction.

Thanks. The reason why I'm running the script on a CVS sandbox, is that
I am trying to verify that things have not regressed in that department
before making the tarballs.

Hmmm, we may have some work to do. I remember seeing some entries
for the testsuite, except I can't remember whether they were in a
section that we care about or not.

At the time when I ran the program, I had several pages of output
(in a 65-line terminal). It will be better once we eliminate the
SysV errors from the list. But what I'm trying to do is to automate
the task of validating the source file names for DJGPP.  I suppose
I could parse the output and eliminate the known issues, but if
you can do this exclusion from the script itself (say using a switch
to control that), then it simplifies the release process. And it helps
avoiding a silly bug in my release scripts from missing something.
