[Pkg-tcltk-devel] Bug#793845: nsf: FTBFS on Linux due to test suite errors

Source: nsf
Version: 2.0.0-1
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source

Builds of nsf on Linux architectures failed with test suite errors, of
two types.  (There was also a kFreeBSD failure, which I'll report

On armhf and mipsel, the linearization test segfaults when done:

  linearization/boat.076: boat nx local-order violated ::wheelboat < ::wheelboat ok
  make[1]: *** [test-core] Segmentation fault
  Makefile:533: recipe for target 'test-core' failed
  make[1]: Leaving directory '/«PKGBUILDDIR»'
  dh_auto_test: make -j1 test returned exit code 2
  make: *** [build-arch] Error 2
  debian/rules:11: recipe for target 'build-arch' failed

On the remaining Linux architectures, the http test times out, perhaps
due to idiosyncracies of buildd network configuration:

  TCL_LIBRARY=`echo /usr/include/tcl8.6/tcl-private/library` LD_LIBRARY_PATH=".:/usr/lib:" PATH=".:/usr/lib:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games" TCLLIBPATH=". . " /usr/bin/tclsh8.6 ./library/xotcl/tests/xocomm.test -libdir `echo ./unix` -testlog ./__test.log

Could you please take a look?
