   Can you give me an actual example of this? I've tried all of the
following in ~/.dejagnurc without any effect:

set board_info(gcc,timeout) "5400"
set target_info(gcc,timeout) "5400"

set target_info(unix,timeout) "5400"
set board_info(unix,timeout) "5400"
set target_info(host,timeout) "5400"
set board_info(host,timeout) "5400"

set board_info("unix","gcc,timeout") "5400"
set board_info("host","gcc,timeout") "5400"
set target_info("unix","gcc,timeout") "5400"
set target_info("host","gcc,timeout") "5400"

set board_info(host,testcase_timeout) "5400"
set board_info(unix,testcase_timeout) "5400"
set target_info(host,testcase_timeout) "5400"
set target_info(unix,testcase_timeout) "5400"

set timeout 5400
set testcase_timeout 5400

   In case it isn't obvious, I have little or no clue about tcl, expect and
dejagnu. The only time that I've had success in modifying the timeout was by
adding this to /usr/share/dejagnu/baseboards/unix.exp:

set_board_info gcc,timeout 5400

   This only works for the gcc tests, and I'm assuming that s/gcc/g++/ would
make it work for the g++ tests, and so on. But I'd much prefer not to modify
any of DejaGnu's files or any of the files in my copy of the repository.

   The question of how to raise the dejagnu timeout has been asked a few
times before over the years with no good answer, and given that it is likely
for people to run into this issue again, I'd like
<URL:> to say a few words about this.
