OK, I've got the problem solved.  My errors are similar to the above, but the 
only errors I'm getting are tst-fgetwc.out and annexc.out.  If tst-fgetwc is 
corrected properly, then the (ignored) error will not trigger the Error 2 at the 
end of the file.  The Error 2 is what was confusing me in the beginning because 
I don't normally get that.

I don't get the nptl or rt errors.

I know how to fix tst-fgetwc.  It requires a change to libio/tst-fgetwc.c and 

I think our options are to

1.  Ignore the error
2.  Document the error
3.  Modify the files to fix the test case.  That will take two separate seds:

Before changing to glibc-build:

sed -i s/utf8/UTF-8/ libio/tst-fgetwc.c
sed -i '/tst-fgetws-ENV/ a\
tst-fgetwc-ENV = LOCPATH=$(common-objpfx)localedata' libio/Makefile
