And the crash was the problem.  It spewed silicon all over the build 
directory.  I did a 'make clean && make'; the build got a little bit 
farther than previously and died with similar error message.  I peeked 
into the file listed and it was all binary.

So I removed the directory entirely, re-unpacked the tarball, and 
started over.  93 minutes later, make test PASSed.

So this is no longer an issue, much less a blocker.

Thank you very much.
