I don't understand that comment.  Do you see the same error on a second
"make check" or do you not see it?

  Can install anyway and attempt to find miscalculation.
  make check results in one error (see below)

When a library does not pass its self-tests, then it seems unwise to
install it.

  PASS: t-hightomask
I happened to have a compiler installed that claims to be exactly the
same version, but I nevertheless cannot reproduce the error.
