Copying gconv-modules to the build dir just before running 'make check'
eliminated all the locale test errors. My Linux knowledge isn't at the
stage yet where I can decipher enough of the build scripts for glibc to
figure out why this needed to be done (but trying was fun in a
headache-inducing way). Hopefully it's just an issue with the tests and
won't cause any problems to crop up with later compiles in the CLFS
