After a while I suddenly got the bright idea to step out of glibc-build
and enter glibc-2.3.2 to search for the timeout :-) I found it in
io/test-lfs.c and increased from 20 to 120, and then I had to go back to
glibc-build/io/ and manually delete test-lfs and test-lfs.o (a "make
tests-clean" didn't do it).
And now the "make check" did run without any problems!
But this should be mentioned in the book or the FAQ..
