Chapter 6 binutils 'make check' failures

I've had a pretty smooth run so far with SVN-20060207, but have run into -
what I *think* is - a slight problem. I've just run the 'make check' tests
after rebuilding binutils in Chapter 6 [the configure and make phases
proceeded without a hitch]. A partial dump of the failures:

                === ld Summary ===

# of expected passes            222
# of unexpected failures        21
# of expected failures          4

make[1]: Leaving directory `/binutils-build/libiberty'
make: Target `check' not remade because of errors.

All previous steps have proceeded correctly [including the toolchain
adjustment after rebuilding glibc; sanity checks performed and passed at all
crucial junctures], as did the actual rebuilding of binutils.

My question: are these errors acceptable, and I may proceed with installing
binutils, and onto subsequent steps ? Or should I investigate these error
causes - if so, any pointers ?

Looking forward to any feedback.
