Okay... Yes I did, but I applied the patch before running the existing 
script.  Also, glibc was installed already.  I don't think the 
iconv-test fix is entirely correct.  It did not work this time, maybe it 
passed because glibc was already installed?  Starting a new build of 
glibc (with one installed).  Greg, when you get time, can you confirm 
that the copy does fix the testsuite immediately after the temp tools 
phase on DIY?  If so, then I have no idea why this did not work.

FYI, my packager uses the build commands at the top of the log file to 
do the build.  IOW, I create the log file with the build commands at the 
top, complete with subshell and time commands, then source the file from 
the extract directory.  Here are the first few lines of the log 
(including the build commands) and other useful parts of the log:

I am starting a fresh build of glibc to see what happens when it is 
already installed.
