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.
