I can suggest some places to look:

* The hugs-bugs mailing list is the only way to (possibly) contact the
original developers.

* There's a couple of repos on github: Franklin Chen, Chris Done.
   Franklin has also grabbed the 2009 developer snapshot.

But I suspect the answer is: there are no tests/never were.

spelunking in their codebase. Weirdly, I can't find a test suite!
- The November 2003 version
<https://github.com/bollu/hugs/blob/master/src/Makefile.in#L280> has a rule
in the makefile to cd ../tests . However, such a folder does not exist in
the source tree.
- the September 2006 version
doesn't have a test / check rule at all.

I find this baffling. Where did the tests go?!

If you have access to them --- or if you the story behind where the tests
are, please do let me know!
