[lfs-support] New failure in coreutils tests

 I'm building the current book with the newer grep, man-pages,
kernel-headers, and autofoo that Matt is working on.  This is as a
test of my hardware (looking good at the moment, but a few BLFS
packages have caused me ICEs recently, so not yet certain if it is
now ok - will reply to the earlier thread with the gory details when
I'm convinced :)

 The host system is LFS-7.1.  In coreutils it now fails in 'check
user' with
../build-aux/test-driver: line 95: 12348 Aborted "$@" > $log_file 2>&1
FAIL: test-getlogin

 which sets non-zero status and breaks my build at the end of 'check
user'.  The code is

# Test script is run here.
"$@" >$log_file 2>&1
if test $enable_hard_errors = no && test $estatus -eq 99; then

 I'm assuming this is from gnulib-tests/test-getlogin.c.  Not seen
this failure in my builds earlier this week, perhaps it's a one-off
or perhaps something in the 3.3.4 headers has changed.

 Or, maybe it's just my hardware (again).

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
