[BUG] gnome-libs-0.99.4 'make check' fails gratuitously

I now have a successful compile of gnome-libs-0.99.4 on my
Solaris 2.5.1 system, and found some non-serious failures doing
'make check'.

On my first attempt, I got the following --

make check
make[2]: Entering directory
make check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory
./fileconvert.test: ../../../test-suite/runtest.sh: not found
FAIL: fileconvert.test
./metadata.test: ../../../test-suite/runtest.sh: not found
FAIL: metadata.test
./parse-path.test: ../../../test-suite/runtest.sh: not found
FAIL: parse-path.test
./skel.test: ../../../test-suite/runtest.sh: not found 
FAIL: skel.test
./split.test: ../../../test-suite/runtest.sh: not found
FAIL: split.test
./trigs.test: ../../../test-suite/runtest.sh: not found
FAIL: trigs.test
6 of 6 tests failed

The problem is that, in all of the test-suite/*.test files, the path
to runtest.sh is set wrong.  I corrected this and ran 'make check'
again, and got --

make  check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory
Files ./expected/fileconvert.out and results/fileconvert.out differ
FAIL: fileconvert.test

All of the other tests passed.

Checking results/fileconvert.out, I see that the test failed because
I do not have lynx installed.  It would be nice to have configure check
for lynx, and skip this test if lynx is not found.

Sorry, no patches, just a bug report.
