And if you follow Greg's link, you'll see that his workaround is:

cp -v ../glibc-$GLIBC_VER/iconvdata/gconv-modules iconvdata

and for what it's worth, it didn't help me. I did this before
running the tests and still got the iconv errors.

Here's from my logfile:

`../glibc-2.8-20080922/iconvdata/gconv-modules' -> `iconvdata/gconv-modules'

The above is output from the cp command above. And not only did
I get the two iconv errors, and the math error, I got a few others.
I'm blaming it on the computer I'm using for this build. It is
very old and slow P3-500mhz with 256mb of RAM. Here's the complete
list of errors:
