This was hashed out a couple months ago. Many of these errors only come
up when certain other modules are left out of the system. To test compile
with even the major modules switched on and off would have taken months on
the fastest machine! Currently, "we" the bleeding edge populace are the
test mechanism. The thousands of us working in parallel are far quicker
than the fastest dedicated single CPU or SMP machine to date...
