Minor typos in testing

Is the testing branch open for commits again yet? There's a couple of
typos in chapter 5:
binutils-188.8.131.52.2 Pass 1: "Do not yet remove..." would read better
(IMO) as "Do not remove...yet".
binutils-184.108.40.206.2 Pass 2: Same as above. Additionally the second
sentence starts "hese", not "These".
gettext-0.14.1: The description of the --disable-csharp option states
"We have already locked ourselves into the temporary tools which does
not include a C# compiler". We've not actually gotten into the chroot
area yet. It should probably be replaced with something like ncurses
Inconsistencies in the optional tests: diffutils, ncurses, patch,
util-linux, perl and udev have no text indicating how their test suites
can be run. I can't recall off the top of my head whether any/all of
these even have a test suite, but even the omission of such should, IMO,
be mentioned. At the moment it just looks like we forgot about them.
A new version of iproute2 has been released too. The patch applies
cleanly and has been updated in the patches project already. This
should be a drop-in replacement.
There's only the coreutils patches available in
directory should be being populated by the post-commit script IIRC, so I
don't know whats up with that at the moment.
Note that I've not done a thorough readthrough of that chapter. This is
just what leapt out at me at first glance.
