Is that 'away' or 'awry' as in 'askew'?  I don't really understand your 
issue.  The packages expect, check, and dejaGNU are only built in 
Chapter 5 (tools) and are not in the default path after a reboot.

If you are asking about the 'make test' for expect in Chapter 5, I can't 
help because I never do them in LFS.  When installing in BLFS, I get:

all.tcl: Total 29 Passed   29 Skipped  0  Failed   0
