You should expect XFAILs (for example, for conform/ tests that 
deliberately test features of the relevant standard that are either not 
provided by glibc, or are deliberately unsupported).

You should not expect anything like 132 FAILs; you'll need to get a 
working configuration for testing without so many FAILs on unmodified 
sources before you can effectively test proposed patches.

See the per-release wiki pages, e.g. 
<>.  That shows 17 XFAILs as 
expected for x86_64, but no FAILs.  (Ignore the results for WSL - the 
Windows subsystem for Linux emulation - all they show is defects in that 
subsystem, it's not a suitable environment for normal glibc testing.)

On Ubuntu 18.04 (using a locally built compiler - if you do that, note you 
need to copy* and* into the build directory 
before running the tests) I get two FAILs:

FAIL: resolv/tst-resolv-ai_idn
FAIL: resolv/tst-resolv-ai_idn-latin1

Those appear in the architecture-independent section of the wiki page, for 
systems with too-old libidn2.

For 32-bit testing on 64-bit Ubuntu 18.04 (again, with a locally built 
compiler) I get one FAIL:

FAIL: nss/tst-nss-test3
