I'd like to give that a try.

One request though:

Could you make this more modular, please?  In particular, I'd of
course like to test my local avr-libc tree (always), not the one from
CVS.  After all, I'd like to run regression tests *before* checking
something into CVS.

Also, just assume simulavr is already installed, and mention it as a
prerequisite (in the same sense as Python is a prerequisite -- you
didn't include code to download and install *that* either ;-).

Ideally, I'd love to see this fit into the avr-libc tree somehow, so
the tests form a separate subdir.  No need for any automake stuff,
just manually starting them is fine for me.  Keep in mind that it
should be possible to run it in a Windows-ish environment though (that
otherwise matches the prerequisites).

cheers, J"org               .-.-.   --... ...--   -.. .  DL8DTL
