Here are the causes:

FAIL:  coreutils
   - test suite failures due to btrfs on alderaan

FAIL:  crda
   - due to python2 transistion
   - has been fixed on trunk

FAIL:  flex
   - can not replicate - makeflags issue?

FAIL:  gcc
   - source download timeout...

FAIL:  ndiswrapper
   - patch: **** Can't open patch file /build/kernel-2.6.35.patch : No 
such file or directory
   - due to using $startdir instead of $srcdir

FAIL:  udev
   - /build/PKGBUILD: line 109: cd: /build/src/udev-compat-166: No such 
file or directory
   - due to now $pkgname being the actual package name in package_*() 

FAIL:  vi
   - due to "force" not being an accepted option anymore
