Smile LFS Chapter 6.37. Automake-1.11.3 error


Hello there!

This is my first building LFS by following the LFS-BOOK-7.1.
After long time work,more than 12 hours since the building process
started,a problem occured when I was making 'Automake-1.11.3' tests at
'Chapter 6.37. Automake-1.11.3.'The feedback given by the terminal is
as follows.
=====================================
1 of 842 tests failed
(96 tests were not run)
See tests/test-suite.log
Please report to bug-automake@gnu.org
=====================================
make[3]: *** [test-suite.log] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/sources/automake-1.11.3/tests'
make[2]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/sources/automake-1.11.3/tests'
make[1]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/automake-1.11.3/tests'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
And I checked the make process,the FAIL info is:

FAIL: conffile-leading-dot.test
I have reinstalled the 'Automake-1.11.3' after this error occured
at the first time,and unfortunately,it failed again.

Can anyone tell me why this error occured and how to solve it?
Do I need to rebuild the LFS from zero again?

I have just received the message from Bruce Dubbs <bruce.dubbs@gmail.com>
That's normal. You can either ignore it or upgrade to automake-1.11.5 which
tests clean. I would ignore the test failure.

So,move on...

Which test is failing ? ?

Automake-1.11.3, there is a patch for a "test suite bug":
