That's my preferred solution too, for obvious reasons! But your advice puzzles 
me all the same. If the test results really don't matter, even when you get a 
lot of errors, why does the book emphasise the need to carry out these tests 
for glibc, binutils, gcc and the three gcc libraries?
In this section, the test suite for Glibc is considered critical. Do not skip 
it under any circumstance.
