> I dont get these errors on a normal LFS 5.1.1 build.

I tried building LFS 5.1.1 by the book just to see, what 
would happen and only got 2 of the 3 math errors (no 
test-ifloat error) and none of the other errors. 

This obviously means that the source of the problem with
math/test-ifloat, dlfcn/default, elf/tst-array[1234] and 
elf/order originates from the hlfs versions of the packages 
and patches and their incompatibility with my hardware
and build system.

Unfortunately this gets me no closer to a functioning
hlfs system, since I still haven't found any clues as to
the importance of these failed tests or the repercussions
of ignoring them and finishing the build.

Hoping I could be of more use tracking down the problem,
