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.
