13  <para>This chapter builds the tools needed by some packages to run the tests
14  that they have. I.e., <command>make check</command>. Tcl, Expect,
15  and DejaGNU are needed for the GCC and Binutils testsuites. Check is needed
16  for KBD tests. Installing four packages for testing purposes may seem
17  excessive, but it is very reassuring, if not essential, to know that the most
18  important tools are working properly.</para>
