Possible enhancement for glibc "make check"?

At least one of the glibc tests run during "make check" (test-lfs) will 
fail if /tmp is a Linux tmpfs filesystem (at least it does on my systems 
anyway). There is an easy way to get around this, though: set a TMPDIR 
environment variable to point somewhere else during the "make check" 
run. This avoids getting test failures that are not actually legitimate 
failures.

Is this worth considering for putting in the book?
