The illegal instruction stuff seems somehow problematic either way. The
training data seems to be generated via a not-really-trivial process, so
my guess is that to properly package this, we would really have to
generate the training data 'from source'. For now, it might make more
sense to have users "BYOTD" (bring your own training data) and leave it
out of the packaging story.

Andy, what would you think about dumbing down your patch so
tesseract-ocr simply doesn't run tests (or try to build them, for that
matter)? So sorry for sending you on this wild goose chase!

I'm willing to adjust and push such a change, unless someone has a
better idea.
