Look at the result of
(in S-plus:)
	validate(verbose=TRUE, outfile="......./validate-3.4.out")

which gives (for me, S-plus 3.4 on Solaris 2.5) 
2106 Lines of output.
It's full of tests using "standard data sets".  (-->  'demos' available!)

Basically, at the end of each example, there are  statements which
should return  TRUE  if the 'validation test' is passed, e.g.,
	all(c(b.test$statistic == 1, abs(b.test$p.value - 0.1562) < tol, 
	      b.test$alternative == "two.sided"))

One bigger job would be to run these through R and analyze the
results... -- any volunteers ?
	((I could even send you the file if don't have S-plus
