  Ouch!  I've missed that.  I'll have to take some time out to think 
about how I can use the scripts extracted from the book (my tarballs and 
patches are all on /sources, but that is an nfs mount, so I really don't 
want to untar there).  I thought other people were seeing this, because 
somebody suggested installing locales into /tools.

  So, in my case I don't have /usr/lib/locale/, whereas 
/usr/lib64/locale/ contains locale-archive.  But that only gets 
created *after* the 64-bit glibc tests (which all pass), so even if I'd 
symlinked the directory, it would still be empty.  But then locales in 
glibc are a mystery area - try using 'file' on the locale-archive.

  Well, I guess next time I'll run with the directory and symlink, in 
case it makes a change  I need to intercept the autotools testsuites to 
get the internal logs, so I guess I might as well run with this first, 
in case it makes a difference.
