  architecture(s) ?  I had a disgusting number of failures in glibc 
x86_64 (multilib, but only -m32), some of which were definitely in using 
locales (e.g. de_DE).  If this is down to omitting locales in /tools, 
I'll take my hat off to you, but I'm dubious: i686, x86_64-64, x86_64 
-m64, and ppc all got through without serious issues (glibc snapshots 
from a few weeks ago).
