  "Used for glibc" is what I meant (ok, failing to build isn't strictly a 
test, but at this time of year I'm doing well if I can string a sentence 

  Let me try again.  We had a working build with texinfo and perl built 
in temp-tools.  Now we are trying to cross-compile them, and some of us 
are failing.  At the moment, I don't see the benefit of getting involved 
in the obscurities of perl's Configure just so we can move it to 
"temporary-system" and rename "temporary-tools" as "test-tools".

  das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
