 How is it failing?  Is the failure consistent?  In all platforms?
 Does it happen with gcc and clang?
 I remember fixing some failures in this specific test months ago, and
 now see that the fixes went into atf 0.20 (which is in the tree).  In
 fact, the test tries first to see if the compiler "works" by running a
 simple "pre-check" and then executes the real test.  I recall some
 compiler bug (can't remember if gcc or clang) that prevented this from
 working properly though so this test is actually reporting a real
 issue somewhere.

 Ideally, just like with any other software in src/external/: you can
 patch it, but you should feed back any fixes upstream. And if the
 fixes/changes are not clear, try to discuss them with upstream first.
 Which is what you are doing here, so cool!

 Well, if it really turns out to be a compiler problem... patching the
 test in NetBSD directly is probably reasonable.
