  Thanks.  My multilib x86_64 is still severely bogged down trying to 
build some 32-bit bclfs [oh, how I hate libtool! ] ;)  so I've added 
this to my list of things to investigate (along with alsa, revisiting 
the hfsutils patch for ppc, and G5 issues - don't hold your breathe 
waiting!).  It appears as if the testsuites for each 
architecture/flavour are different, which I find somewhat strange.

  The questions are: which locales do we need to install into /tools, for 
which architectures, purely so that the final glibc testsuites will not 
fail specific tests.  Worst case, this ought to be far fewer locales 
than are needed for all the tests in the final system.

  Mea culpa.  Sorry about that.  At least that sort of error can be fixed 
while building the final system.

  Ok, thanks.  Will change it.
