Hi all

I am just building lfs 7.9 and performed the test in chapter 6.13.

I a under the impression to have done everything strictly by the book, 
but I'm getting an error that is not metioned on the page.

Below is the test output of "make check", I have omitted everyting that 
reports no errors:

Running /lgl-bld/binutils-2.26/ld/testsuite/ld-elf/compress.exp ... 

FAIL: Link with zlib-gabi compressed debug output 

Running /lgl-bld/binutils-2.26/ld/testsuite/ld-x86-64/x86-64.exp ... 

FAIL: PLT PC-relative offset overflow check 

While the book states:

The test 'Link with zlib-gabi compressed debug output' is known to fail.

, my second error is not mentioned as expected to fail. Do I have to worry?

The summary is as follows:

                 === ld Summary === 


# of expected passes            1371 

# of unexpected failures        2 

# of expected failures          57 

# of untested testcases         1 

# of unsupported tests          12

After the summary, I get these messages:

/lgl-bld/binutils-2.26/build/ld/ld-new 2.26.20160125

Are they also not supposed to appear?
