-<para>This package is known to behave badly when you change its default
-optimization flags (including the <parameter>-march</parameter> and
-<parameter>-mcpu</parameter> options). Therefore, if you have defined any
-environment variables that override default optimizations, such as CFLAGS and
-CXXFLAGS, we recommend un-setting them when building Glibc.</para>

-<para>This architecture does not currently support NPTL,
-so we will have to include Glibc Linuxthreads as a threading library.

-circumstance.</para></important>

-<para>Test the results:</para>

-<screen><userinput>make check</userinput></screen>
-
-<para>The Glibc test suite is highly dependent on certain functions of
-the host system, in particular the kernel. In general, the Glibc test
-suite is always expected to pass. However, in certain circumstances,
-some failures are unavoidable. This is a list of the most common
-issues:</para>
-
-<itemizedlist>
-<listitem><para>The <emphasis>math</emphasis> tests sometimes fail when running
-on systems where the CPU is not a relatively new genuine Intel or authentic AMD.
-Certain optimization settings are also known to be a factor here.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>The <emphasis>gettext</emphasis> test sometimes fails due to
-host system issues. The exact reasons are not yet clear.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>The <emphasis>atime</emphasis> test sometimes fails
-when the LFS partition is mounted with the
-<parameter>noatime</parameter> option.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>The <emphasis>shm</emphasis> test can fail when the
-host system is using the <systemitem
-class="filesystem">devfs</systemitem> file system but does not have
-the <systemitem class="filesystem">tmpfs</systemitem> file system
-mounted at <filename class="directory">/dev/shm</filename>.  This
-occurs because of a lack of support for <systemitem 
-class="filesystem">tmpfs</systemitem> in the
-kernel.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>When running on older and slower hardware, some tests
-can fail because of test timeouts being exceeded.</para></listitem>
-</itemizedlist>
-
-<para>Though it is a harmless message, the install stage of Glibc will
-complain about the absence of <filename>/etc/ld.so.conf</filename>.
-Prevent this warning with:</para>
-
-<screen><userinput>touch /etc/ld.so.conf</userinput></screen>
-
-<para>Install the package:</para>
-
-<screen><userinput>make install</userinput></screen>
-
-<para>The locales that can make the system respond in a different
-language were not installed by the above command. Install this
-with:</para>
-
-<screen><userinput>make localedata/install-locales</userinput></screen>
-
-<para>To save time, an alternative to running the
-previous command (which generates and installs every locale Glibc is
-aware of) is to install only those locales that are wanted and needed.
-This can be achieved by using the <command>localedef</command>
-command. Information on this command is located in the
-<filename>INSTALL</filename> file in the Glibc source.  However, there
-are a number of locales that are essential in order for the tests of
-future packages to pass, in particular, the
-<emphasis>libstdc++</emphasis> tests from GCC. The following
-instructions, instead of the <parameter>install-locales</parameter>
-target used above, will install the minimum set of locales necessary
-for the tests to run successfully:</para>
-
-<screen><userinput>mkdir -p /usr/lib/locale
-localedef -i de_DE -f ISO-8859-1 de_DE
-localedef -i de_DE at euro -f ISO-8859-15 de_DE at euro
-localedef -i en_HK -f ISO-8859-1 en_HK
-localedef -i en_PH -f ISO-8859-1 en_PH
-localedef -i en_US -f ISO-8859-1 en_US

-localedef -i fr_FR at euro -f ISO-8859-15 fr_FR at euro
-localedef -i it_IT -f ISO-8859-1 it_IT
-localedef -i ja_JP -f EUC-JP ja_JP</userinput></screen>
-
-<para>Some locales installed by the <command>make
-localedata/install-locales</command> command above are not properly
-supported by some applications that are in the LFS and BLFS books.
-Because of the various problems that arise due to application
-programmers making assumptions that break in such locales, LFS should
-not be used in locales that utilize multibyte character sets
-(including UTF-8) or right-to-left writing order.  Numerous unofficial
-and unstable patches are required to fix these problems, and it has
-been decided by the LFS developers not to support such complex locales.  This applies to the
-ja_JP and fa_IR locales as well—they have been installed only for
-GCC and Gettext tests to pass, and the <command>watch</command> program
-(part of the Procps package) does not work properly in them. Various
-attempts to circumvent these restrictions are documented in
-internationalization-related hints.</para>
