I checked in a modified version of your script here:

I fixed the check targets to use it instead of just dumping the contents of fntests.log to the screen.

Instead of eliminating all output from skipped or failed tests, the test code and up to 32 lines of output are displayed.  I'm not sure whether this is the best choice, but I think some output should be displayed just as a reminder/notice of what is failing or skipped.

I'd like to be able to show the output of test failures on standard output, but without the full contents of the fntests.log file, only the actual failed tests. Talked on irc a week ago or so and the best solution we came up with was to filter fntests.log after the full test run completes. And jwe suggested we could hook it into the make rules so it runs automatically, but only when the user is building verbosely (either with "--disable-silent-rules" or with "make check V=1").

I have an awk script written that does the filtering job, now I just need some help or inspiration about how to hook it into the makefile.

Patch in progress attached.
