Chapter 6.11 make check normal?

I ran "make" with no errors then to the next step...

make -k check >glibc-check-log 2>&1
grep Error glibc-check-log
It didnt do anything for ages (about 25mins)
Then popped up with....


I ran the check again (twice) but it doesnt do anything.... or more to the point say anything.

Has it failed the check? Should I carry on or not?

I tried running
make -k check
This brought up stuff on the screen with no errors but it isnt quite what the book wants me to do, hence my query....

If it's an ignored error it's probably ok. Make check takes a very long time.
