The package seems to be building tests during "make all" phase even though I don't have FEATURES=test enabled. For details see my blog: http://blog.flameeyes.eu/articles/2008/06/11/please-dont-build-your-examples-by-default .
It would be nice if the tests were disabled by default and only built with FEATURES=test. You can find an example patch usually suitable for upstream on the blog above.
Especially since it fails those tests later. (Bug #288629.)

Patch to fix this bug
When test is not set the test subdir is removed from the build.
