    30     <para>Experience has shown that there is little to be gained
    31     from running the test suites in <xref
    32     linkend="chapter-testsuite-tools"/>. There can be no escaping the fact
    33     that the host system always exerts some influence on the tests in that
    34     chapter, often causing inexplicable failures. Because the tools built
    35     in <xref linkend="chapter-testsuite-tools"/> are temporary and
    36     eventually discarded, we do not recommend running the test suites in
    37     <xref linkend="chapter-testsuite-tools"/> for the average reader. The
    38     instructions for running those test suites are provided for the
    39     benefit of testers and developers, but they are strictly
    40     optional.</para>
