Included in the gcc-2.95 source is the gcc-3.0.4 testsuite to check
for regressions between 2.95 and 3.0. So these failures are
expected. Compare the results with these from 3.0.4 and look for
_additional_ failures. Only this comparision makes sense.
However currently the make check during the build is disabled.
