Each of the glibc releases has common failure lists for all supported arches.
You can see the ones for glibc 2.24 here:
What you have looks like an environmental issue when building.
If you build with a non-/usr --prefix then you must assemble a
complete sysroot at that location for the build process.
This includes having the right kernel headers, and a dynamically
loadable compiler helper routine library (libgcc_s.so) for
cancellation (the threading cancellation tests are failing in your
I suggest you start here:
