  Progress update:

  Using the 20051017 glibc snapshot and ONLY a 32-bit perl in test-tools, 
the 64-bit glibc testsuite ALL passes on x86_64 (so, somebody has at 
last fixed something in wcsmbs), gcc-4.0.2 has one g++ failure, binutils 
all passes.  Everything else passed except for lang-gawk in 64-bit 
gettext (test skipped in 32-bit!) and the 32-bit glibc tests which still 
fail all over the place for me.

   I'm totally baffled by the glibc-32 test failures, but so far I 
haven't worked out how to see any error messages other than the 'invalid 
character' messages for catgets/de and the 'cannot run on the 
de_DE.UTF-8' localemake messages.

  Not quite there in the final-system - discarded fedora's defines for 
/usr/lib/perl5 (vendor, etc), they seem to force it ALL to go into 
/usr/lib.  With just the fedora patch and a define for -Dlibpth, I've 
got everything installed in /usr/lib64 and the output of perl -V is 
almost correct (it shows libc as /lib/ which is decidedly
