Hi Juanjo:

What is the proper procedure for running the tests?

What I did after downloading ecl-test was to cd into ecl-test and run 
'make' which chugged away for a few seconds and then I examined the output.

I re-ran the tests after downloading a fresh copy of ecl-test and upon 
examining the log files I find that 'ansi.log' and 'bugs.log' both have 
errors in them that indicate the tests aborted prematurely (Trying to 
attach them to this message for your inspection).

Both 'ansi-old.log' and 'tests.log' show they completed, but looking in 
their related folders is where I find many ".erg" files.

Is it expected that I rework something to get the tests to run?
