Chapter 6: Glibc make check problems

I've got as far a chapter 6, and am attempting install glibc. The configuration and make went smoothly, and seemed OK. However doing the 'make check' part initially stopped with an error when dealing with a file in the locales called 'en_US.ISO-8859-1'. Why this particular file among all the others of that ilk decided to fall over is weird.

I then decide just to carry on a do 'make check' again hoping it'll carry on where it stopped, but even worse this time, where the last few lines logged are this:-

make -C locale tests
make[2]: Entering directory `/sources/glibc-2.3.2/locale'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `tests'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/sources/glibc-2.3.2/locale'
make -C localedata tests

...and it hangs here. I tried to 'kill -9' the jobs concerned, but the 'make -C localedata tests' job doesn't want to die. Any ideas what's going on?

Is it worth risking ignoring and plouging on into a 'make install'?
