FAIL: test-u8-possible-linebreaks
FAIL: test-ulc-width-linebreaks
FAIL: test-u8-mbtouc
FAIL: test-u8-mbtouc-unsafe
FAIL: uniwidth/test-uc_width2.sh

These failures are consequences of changes in libunistring behaviour.
What happens is that gettext embeds the test suite from the newest
(unreleased) libunistring, but the LDFLAGS make it link to the
installed libunistring. Any change in behaviour thus comes out as a
test failure.

The first two tests complain because of changes in linebreaking behaviour
- which gettext uses for PO files to decide where to insert esthetic

The next two tests were changed on 2010-11-13 to improve handling of
ill-forned UTF-8 input.

The fifth test checks the width of some particular characters in rarely
used scripts.

Nothing to be worried about.

But it would be good to get rid of the test failures one way or the other,
nevertheless, otherwise the same failures will be reported again and again.
