Attached are my logs. I am building from cygwin. I have not yet looked
into any of the failures. I believe your logs had 28 failures with 22
expected. I don't think all of our failures line up though. Note that
I ran it once without setting --host (testsuite.log.bz2), and once
setting --host=i686-pc-mingw32 (testsuite_cross.log.bz2).
