Long before I worked for Red Hat, having dejagnu as part of the
unified tree saved me from the trouble of having to install a recent
enough version of dejagnu and expect on the 12 different platforms on
which I tested GCC and binutils weekly.  It was very useful for me
long before I joined Red Hat.  I can't believe it's only useful for
Red Hat nowadays.  I'd like the ability to build expect and dejagnu as
part of a unified tree to stay.
