I've always seen that bomb in math/test-ldouble and math/test-ildouble 
in both chapter 5 and chapter 6.  I've heard this is typical of my uP 
(AMD K6-3).  Ignore it, or is there a way to patch around it?  I hate to 
skip over the entire make check when running scripts.

I also usually see (if I spot it going by) is this warning:

rt/tst-shm: failed to create a shared memory object: shm_opem: Function
