I thought we got down to zero failures at one point with the 2.1.x glibc, but
maybe I imagined that.
The wcscoll failure is indeed due to a compiler bug. I've been playing with a
backport of Nick's patch to 2.95.2 which seems to fix it. I can generate a
diff if anybody else wants to have a go.

It's strange. I haven't been able to bootstrap at all for a month or so - I
always get errors in `make compare'. Only one other person seems to be seeing
this. I wonder if it's somehow related to the Debian environment.
