If you want to keep the glibc build and source directories around you
can.  I can't recall the commands now, but I think you can run the
test directly from the top level.  We all know how popular it is to
keep directories around, though.

OTOH, as I wrote in another mail, you can circumvent the need for
adjusted linker and specs by adding -L and -rpath.  We aren't using
what's compiled anyway and it beats the fact that this nice perl
sanity check is being run on the wrong binaries.
