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.
