Interestingly, I don't get any ERROR from gdb.asm/asm-source.exp
on native i686-pc-linux-gnu.
My test script may be different from yours. More likely, my
toolchain may be different from yours. I am using stock tcl 8.3.4,
expect 5.33.0, dejagnu 1.4.2 compiled from source (not whatever
version comes with my Red Hat Linux).
Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favor of the patch. It's good for the
testsuite to be "liberal in what it expects". I just want to note that
there are several different versions of expect and dejagnu in the
world and their differences are materializing in test results.
I have a side project to package up my "standard gnu toolchain"
scripts. They start by downloading 100 megabytes of pristine tarballs
and then build from scratch.
