We had a report of a cilk error, among other errors, for 7.7 (cilk
was new with gcc-4.9.0).  At that time I was seeing rather more
errors in my own builds (turned out I had an old, smaller, ulimit
setting).  My guess is that 1G RAM might be a bit tight, perhaps it
is swapping, slowly ?

It's only a testsuite ;-)  What really matters is whether it works
when you have finished the build.  In LFS-4 before the 'pure LFS'
changes we got a lot of unreproducible problems, which is why we
recommend running the tests.  Sometimes they show a problem
(hundreds of failures).  I don't think anybody has reported results
quite like yours (_all_ the failures are in cilk), but that doesn't
mean anything.

Nanny Ogg usually went to bed early. After all, she was an old lady.
Sometimes she went to bed as early as 6 a.m.
