The 'test' program

I’ve got a program to compile, a Unix-oriented program, which actually
compiles fine but reports errors because one of the dozen make files (and
extensions) makes a call to the ‘test’ program not found on RTP (I found it
under Redhat, though), so it reports a failure. And my ability to read make
files is such that I’m not sure what lines to comment and what lines to
replace with what else (if I comment all lines which make a call to the
‘test’ program, I get a mega failure). Anyone have a program for QNX which
will take care of this for me? Thanks!

Test is usually a shell built-in (thus a source of confusion

when one calls one’s first program ‘test’), so maybe the makefiles are
checking some unrecognized conditions with it? Could you post an
example call?
