No one else has said anything about this, so I'll chime in now. 8-)
Just beware that building the tests from source will not measure LSB
conformance. You have to use the pre-built binary tests for that. This
is not to say that building and executing the tests won't be useful, just
that the act of rebuilding them invalidates their use as an ABI test. They
are still useful as an API test.
