It has been reported before that make check on glibc fails and it
doesn't seem to harm the system at all. "make checks" are more often
broken or don't work properly. I myself never run a make check. I just
install it and see how well it works. If not, then I will get back to
the package and try to figure out what exactly is wrong.
