oh, I completely misunderstood; I thought from the various reports
that the tr was buried inside atf_add_test_case and failed to see it
in the script when I looked at the script.

Straightforward case of a shell loop that should be a pipeline...
something like this (not actually tested) should serve:

-	for filename in "$(atf_get_srcdir)"/unit-tests/*.mk ; do
-	    basename="${filename##*/}"
-	    basename="${}"
-	    atfname="$(echo "${basename}" | tr "x-" "x_")"
+	for test in "$(ls "$(atf_get_srcdir)"/unit-tests/*.mk |\
+			sed 's,.*/,,;s,\.mk$,,;h;y/-/_/;G;s,\n,/,')"; do
+	    atfname="${test%/*}"
+	    basename="${test#*/}"

and of course for maintainability one should write that seddery in awk
instead and make the $() part a separate shell function, but it
doesn't fit as neatly in an email that way. :-)
