autoconfiguration failed:

$ ./autogen.sh
I am going to run ./configure with no arguments - if you wish
to pass any to it, please specify them on the ./autogen.sh command line.
Running aclocal
Running autoheader
' is already registered with AC_CONFIG_FILES.
autoconf/status.m4:844: AC_CONFIG_FILES is expanded from...
configure.in:513: the top level
autom4te: /bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1

Fortunately I could run it on a linux machine, so I finally got the
configure script generated.

Compilation went fine, but the included test failed:

$ ./run-test.sh
*** Test failed: Basic check
*** output is in 'out', expected output in 'out.expected'

the "out" file is attached.
