I think the small amount of available information on google for
tst-clock2 failing suggests it isn't common (other than on i586). I
haven't seen it on my own machines, so I've no idea why it happens.
I'll guess it's as likely to be a problem in the testsuite as a problem
in the code being tested.
In the absence of any follow-ups to the postings that google found, I'd
be tempted to assume it isn't a showstopper.
