cvs-1.11.2 "make check" failure

I get this output from "make check":
make[2]: Entering directory `/fs/home/mount/home/prj/src/sptools/cvs-1.11.2/src'
/bin/sh ./sanity.sh `pwd`/cvs
This test should produce no other output than this line, and a final "OK".

FAIL: tag8k-17

My touch command is from GNU fileutils 4.1.8.  How can I investigate
what's going wrong with tag8k-17?

I also had a failure with history-1; the test seems to assume that the
system clock uses the UTC timescale; mine uses the TAI timescale,
which is like UTC but includes leap seconds.  I worked around this by
setting TZ=UTC in the environment (the TAI time zones are "right/*").
It would be nice if the test did this itself, or if the assumption
were removed somehow.
