Gretl contains the MacKinnon tables and prints out the appropriate
p-value for the ADF test.  You can also access such p-values
directly using the urcpval() function.

The wrong p-value that was being shown prior to the recent report
and fix was not the actual test p-value, it was the p-value for a
lagged difference of y (one of the "augmented" terms), a statistic
which is visible only if you call for verbose output.
