I am using NFS from a third system on both the host and target machines.
Basically the easiest way to do this type of testing was for me to do
the build on my home directory which is NFS mounted on all machines from
a shared NFS server.
It looks like the second error is coming from the $(evaluate-test)
command in gen-locales.mk. I put in some echo statements there and if I
put one after $(evaluate_tests) then the non-zero from $(evaluate-test)
gets ignored and make did not abort.
