Don't pay any attention to me.  This was a reversion due to the fact
that I had made a change to my "improved" makefile and was no longer
passing the correct CFLAGS to the build process.  Phew.

AFAICT, the problem went away when I changed the testsuite makefile
to use all of the same flags as everything else in winsup.
