There's no easy way to check.  You just have to search the web for those 
  particular tests.  I will say that having only 5 bugs, not counting 
annexc, out of the many thousands indicate that the build is OK.

I don't really recognize the bugs though.  Many times there are timing 
issues.  What kind of processor are you using?
