Building binutils from Debian (also with my fix tls
patch) I get:

=== ld tests ===

Running target unix
FAIL: Build libpr9676-4a.so

It passes on amd64 and powerpc. Amd64 has in the readelf output of libpr9676-4a.so the following line:

    52: 0000000000000650     6 FUNC    LOCAL  DEFAULT   12 foo

(and similarly powerpc) which is tested for by (and matches) the following regular expression:

 +[0-9]+: +[0-9a-f]+ +[0-9a-f]+ +FUNC +LOCAL +DEFAULT +[0-9]+ +_?foo

that is in pr9676.rd.

But the output of readelf of libpr9676-4a.so on Alpha contains the following:

45: 00000000000007c0 8 FUNC LOCAL DEFAULT [<other>: 80] 11 foo

That is, it contains an extra "[<other>: 80]" which does not match the regular expression in the test.

So my question is, what is this "[<other>: 80]"? Does it matter? Is this failure a false report?
