rendercheck_test properly tests for the binary and reports its absence if that's the case. Problem is, it gets reported to stderr, which is why Jeffrey was unable to find a message.

rendercheck_test <OPTS> 2>&1 && echo "success" || echo "failure" would at least capture stderr in the log file, easing debugging of this kind of issue. Beware, this bears testing, to quote Knuth "I have only proved it correct, not tried it".

I agree that the final solution is to ensure rendercheck is present. For checkbox-ihv purposes, we can feed a custom PPA for it to fetch packages, and we'd have to ensure that proper dependencies are in place so that installing checkbox-ihv-graphics pulls an updated version of x11-apps from either the PPA or archive.
