So Debian 9 will have dejagnu-1.6.

(Ubuntu 16.10 allegedly has 1.6 too)

I guess neither redhat
(https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/dejagnu/ redirects to a
login page but there seem to be 1.5.1 packages) nor SuSE did update dejagnu in the meantime.

Someone should poke gentoo to bump their dejagnu-1.5 to current -1.6
