Wed May 26 13:55:40 2010, original submission:

On a system with glibc 2.11.1 (Fedora 12), the make check phase turns out all green. On a system with glibc 2.12 (one of snapshots of to-be RHEL 6), the features/recursion test fails. Original report is to be found here:

The bug seem to be in how command line arguments are being passed to make, in particular that the option "-w-j" is passed. This was apparently OK before, but fails now. I'm attaching the patch that fixes this testsuite problem.
