I think all the toolchain packages use nocheck - at least binutils,
glibc and gcc do (I filed bugs for a couple of them).
I wanted to get around to introduce nocheck in a couple more packages,
but maybe it's better to just settle on it now and propose it for policy
inclusion for lenny.
Which package is using notest? Last I looked perl had a non-standard
way (x-no-test or so) and I filed a bug to change that to nocheck as
So let's agree on nocheck?
