The package is uploaded only for one arch, and then built by the
build daemon for the other architectures. Nobody really check the
testsuite before an upload of a package from a build daemon.

For new upstream version, we try to review the testsuite on all
architectures (at least the ones that have a developer accessible
machine) before the upload to unstable. See for example [1].
Unfortunately this has not been done for glibc 2.5 before the 
upload to unstable.
