My guess is that you are running the build as root? The test ("make check") phase cannot be run with
uid 0.

As an aside, the patch you're using probably won't work. If /dev/console doesn't exist in an OpenVZ
container, the behaviour of jobs within such a container will be different to those outside one
(bad). I'll put a comment on the bug.
