glibc make check errors (LFS book v6.7)

Hello All,

I am following LFS book v6.7. Currently I am trying to build glibc in
chapter 6 and at the step just before "Re-adjusting the tool chain".

I apologize if this is a repeat question. I searched in the lfs-support
search page and found few hits but none of the threads seem to provide the
resolution. I also saw issue2683 (
http://community.linuxfromscratch.org/issues/2683) in the lfs community list
and even there it doesn't have any resolution. So I am trying here for some
help.

I will take a look at the tst-* files listed below after I get home. But
here is what I attempted last night.

The build of glibc went through fine. But make check resulted in errors. The
following are errors from the first attempt:

root:/sources/glibc-build$ grep Error glibc-check-log
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/stdio-common/bug22.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [stdio-common/tests] Error 2

make[2]: [/sources/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-attr3.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/rt/tst-cpuclock2.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [rt/tests] Error 2

make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-chk3.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-lfschk3.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-chk6.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-lfschk6.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [debug/tests] Error 2
make[1]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/c++-types-check.out] Error 1
make: *** [check] Error 2

If I do a make check immediately after this with the TIMEOUTFACTOR=16, it
runs without issues. So I tried again by deleting everything under '
/sources/glibc-build' and then did a complete build again.

Running make check with the TIMEOUTFACTOR=16. This time only the items in
blue above (the studio-common) are gone. The book and in the lfs support
forum I read the errors related to nptl tests and the posix/annexc.out (the
ones marked in orange) can be ignored as they are expected.

grep Error glibc-check-log
make[2]: [/sources/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/nptl/tst-attr3.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/rt/tst-cpuclock2.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [rt/tests] Error 2

make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-chk3.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-lfschk3.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-chk6.out] Error 1
make[2]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/debug/tst-lfschk6.out] Error 1
make[1]: *** [debug/tests] Error 2
make[1]: *** [/sources/glibc-build/c++-types-check.out] Error 1
make: *** [check] Error 2

I am wondering what could be causing the ones marked in red.

Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

cheers,
Anand.
