Glibc test failure

I did this command. It worked fine:

> cp -v ../glibc-2.10.1/iconvdata/gconv-modules iconvdata

This is the command it fails on:

make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log

 And here are the results of the final command if I issue it:

make[2]: *** [posix/tests] Error 2
make[2]: *** [check]Error 2

Did you do this yet?

cp -v ../glibc-2.10.1/iconvdata/gconv-modules iconvdata
make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log
grep Error glibc-check-log

After doing this you will know if you have a problem.
