> Debian sid has 1.5.3 fwiw, so I assume Debian 9 will have that too. Not sure if we can get it into Debian 8, I'm not intimately familiar with the policy. If OTOH GCC-6 requires it then that's probably a strong argument to let it bubble down to Debian 8 if need be.
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
