coreutils-5.0 error

i am using cvs version of the book

i have the following error

it comes during make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check

Making check in lib
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/coreutils-5.0/lib'
make check-am

make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1


the probable erroe is with hostname patch for coreutils bcoz i tried compiling without this patch and it was compiling and did make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TEST=yes check correctly.

Plz help
