I have the error while building on a 32bit kernel. Don't know why.
The point I was trying to make is the configure option should be :
whereas it is 
	--enable-add-ons=libidn,ports linuxthreads

(note the space between ports and linuxthreads instead of the ',').

Anyway, event with the correct option, I have the same error at building.

This makes me wonder when was the last build ok of the glibc ?

How can I run all the tests and get a summary ?
"make check" run the tests but stops at the first failed test.
Looking at the .out files is informative but I cannot check if they are ok or not for all of them.
