Reuben you are right. I read the parallel and serial test requirements
wrong way around.

In GNU Hello configure.ac requires automake 1.11.1 or newer, and that
is in conflict with breakage report from Gordon. Looking the automake
NEWS file 1.12 has lots of changes to testsuite. Automake in broken


seems to be 1.11.3, while mine is 1.14.1. Gordon, would it be too much
trouble to update automake and see if that would fix the issue?
