I fixed two targets the other day, and another has the patch pending in
the ml (OpenBSD). Then there are your FreeBSD clients that you need to
switch to yasm, and apply the fix to the c11 check in configure.

The kfreebsd failures are for the tests filter-metadata-silencedetect
and checkasm-aacpsdsp. After a recent patch silencedetect prints float
values with more precision. Paul said to remove the test and forget
about it, but no idea if there's a better solution.
The checkasm failure can be solved by changing the value passed as
epsilon to float_near_abs_eps_array(), but i don't know which one would
be best without making it too lax and end up having it succeed even when
it's getting bad results.

The rest of the failures are old, like random_seed on some obscure
systems and a bunch of msvc miscompilation failures that Microsoft will
not fix.
