Can you give me one good reason why "make check" should even bother
with /usr/lib/gconv, given that /usr/lib/gconv contains files specific
to the previous version of glibc and "make check" checks the glibc
being built? Please keep in mind that /usr/lib/gconv from the previous
version of glibc can be totally different from the current version.
The logic for gconv in "make check" doesn't make any senses to me.
Basically, glibc build/check shouldn't use any files from the current
C library on the build machine.
Maybe we should introduce DEFAULT_GCONV_PATH for "make check" to
override default_gconv_path in iconv/gconv_conf.c.
