Hi everybody!

Two days ago I started a second try of building LFS. ;-) 

At the chapter "5.16 Coreutils-5.94" I did the following:

1.) ./configure --prefix=/tools
2.) make
3.) make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check
4.) make install

This is the first test of packages I run. And before I did the install I got a 
test error.

My (hopefully simple) question: Do I have to be concerned about the error? For 
details, see below:

All 5 tests passed

make[2]: Leaving directory `/media/sdb3/sources/coreutils-5.94/tests/dd'

I hope this kind of error doesn't harm in any way.

Kind regards,
