BZ #192: 'make check' reports failed tests upon newlines at end of file

creation_ts:2014-10-16 14:40

version:default branch
op_sys:MacOS X
For some tests, existing *.output files are compared to generated *.thisoutput files. If
equal the test succeeds, else it fails.

The reference files (e.g. jctest.output, fptest.output.cp) have no new line at the end
of the file, whereas the generated ones do, which leads to the tests failing.

This is most likely a platform specific bug
