Did you configure with -bintraj set? If not, this is an expected failure.

Note that the test suite is reported (but ignoring) the fact that the bintraj
failed. If you are expecting to use this option, of course, you should take
account of this.

I'm cc-ing this to Mike Crowley, but I don't think(?) users typically run
the "column_fft" code anyway. We will look into this test failure, but you
can probably continue on fine (comment out this test case, and try again.)
