I wonder what is causing that? I can not reproduce the failure, and
the test completes without issue every time.

No idea. I didn't know the Tcl test had the prefacing stuff. I don't
run test suites in Chapter 5, so I wouldn't have ever read that and
I don't experience the test failure when building in BLFS.

It probably should be that the LFS and BLFS instructions are the same
