I'm not an editor but I know that at least on x86 there should be *no*
errors on Ch. 6 glibc make check.

Some older non-intel, x86-compatible proocessors may have errors in the
math tests due to limitations of their FPUs.

Some older hardware might present time-outs in some tests. I have a
P3-800 and I've never had a timeout, though. There is more about it
on the archives, including how to change the timeout value, IIRC.
