Not yet, although there will likely be some soon (when the test suite
is committed). I chose to use the other link to make it clear that even
though the tarball is a snapshot of the depot as of 7/19 the included
README is more recent.

Thanks for taking the time to do the build and the vote!

This is a known issue (a regression, in fact -- we had a check and
a message like that in place but it got accidentally removed) that
needs to be fixed. I'll remember to file bug as soon as the database
is available.

True. There is a comprehensive set of examples that can be used
to informally verify(*) the correctness of the behavior of much
of the library until the test suite has been contributed. It
should start trickling in in a matter of days.

* By typing gmake run in the $BUILDDIR/examples directory.
