In fact, This is in the output you shoud get. The automake system should be expecting a failure here as this is a test of the "assert" macro.

The "bug" is probably some sort of sort of incompatibility between the OS system you are using and the checking mechanism which is part of GNU automake. I know for example cygwin doesn't handle expected failures properly.
