make check discussion

I've finally gotten through glibc in chapter 6 with no errors.  As I'm 
reading the book, however, it seems that the location of the discussion 
of make check errors is in the wrong place.  They're mostly in Chapter 5 
where the instructions say don't do it.  In Chapter 6, the instructions 
say to run the checks, but then point back to Chapter 5 for discussion. 

It seems to me that the discussion should be where  the checks are 
recommended (i.e., Chapter 6) and the pointers to the discussion should 
be in Chapter 5 where is says "You can do it, but we don't recommend it."
