It looks like the fault has something to do with 'trustdb' and
'trustdb.lock' in the checks directory, if I have spelt the file names
correctly from memory.  However, no amount of my futzing with those
files has produced a successful check.

At this point I'm beginning to view 'make check' as being somewhat
hateful if not downright evil because it seems rather troublesome when
something goes awry.  For example I saw a handful of processes running
a couple of days after I had thought I had aborted a 'make check' and
some were replaced by others immediately after being killed.  Also, it
is not obvious how to run individual tests or some tests and not

This is gcc and libc 5.3.12.
