I haven't followed all the thread; sorry if I'm missing something. Do
you have a recent intel or amd cpu? Some models are known to fail some
math tests. If all your errors are in the math tests and your cpu is
old/not intel then i'd say it's safe to go on.

Also double-check you don't have CFLAGS set before compiling glibc.
