Have you tried just copy and pasting them from your browser into your
terminal? It's hard to type every character exactly so my money is on a
typo entering the sed.

Maybe I shouldn't lead you astray, but you could disable running
test-installation.pl completely:

sed -i '/t-i/d' Makefile
make install

I've never known test-installation.pl to tell me anything useful. If
you glibc install is b0rken you'll know soon enough :)
