Interestingly the vast number of the failing tests pass if one builds
with a compiler that raises the baseline to EV67.  This has been
proposed a number of times in the past for the Debian distribution.
I think it is time we did it.  One of our last EV56 users has recently
bowed out due to hardware failure and I am only running EV67 hardware.
