You are right! This bug should have been closed some time ago! I must have forgot! Thanks a lot for checking and noticing this ;-).

Using the tools on Debian Bookworm, "make check" ends after a linking error and does not show the success message anymore. Is this bug still reproducible?

Sorry, the previous comment was a mistake, it should have been done on bug #49459!

The problem is now fixed and pushed to the main repo. The problem was that I thought `AC_FUNC_MALLOC' is included by Gnulib, so after a check, I saw it isn't and we have to call it ourselves.

The checks also include compiling programs with Gnuastro's library and running them. However, when there is an error in the creation of the executable (linking in the example below), the message that all tests have passed is apparently still printed.

The example below is related to bug #49459, kindly reported by Antonio Diaz Diaz.

In such cases that message should not be printed.
