Thanks. I've made a stab at this in r11193, but I had forgotten that
in LFS we don't have the 'Command Explanations' we sometimes use in
BLFS. For coreutils and findutils I think it is fairly obvious which
test is being suppressed.

For gettext I mentioned the test by name, our users can look at the
line in gettext-runtime/tests/Makefile.in which is being deleted to
satisfy themselves that only this test is deleted.
