If this is not Itanium (you don't say), you should really
be using 7.3. Red Hat has repeatedely said that 7.3 is
the first release that has incorporated efforts towards
conformance (it's not conforming, but it's much closer
than previous efforts).

Now that there are systems that attempt conformance, the test
suite is delivered with the expecation that it will be run on
systems that provide the necessary bits. The script checks
for this upfront to save you some time: otherwise all the tests
will fail and you'll find out once the 7000-odd failures have
If you attempt a test run on a system that does not supply the
necessary bits, you have to supply them yourself. In the case
of the LSB dynamic linker, a symlink is the easiest approach to
