make the symlink for stty!

If that _isn't_ the problem, there is a file in one of the binutils
directories (sorry, can't remember whether it's the build or source
directory) containing the test results - it's two or three levels down,
so use ls -lR | more to look for it (or ls -lR | less outside chroot, of
course).  Read through it to find exactly what is happening, but in my
case this exact failure was caused by the missing stty symlink.

This is a job for Riviera Kid!
