+Made use of Warren Levy's change to the Mauve testsuite to handle regressions.
+Modifications have been made to <tt>mauve.exp</tt> to copy the newly created
+<tt>xfails</tt> file of known library failures from the source tree
+to the directory where the libjava <tt>'make check'</tt> is being run.  
+This allows the testsuite to ignore <tt>XFAILS</tt> and thus highlight
+true regressions in the library.
