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.
