Let's see...

#4  0x4000000000003cec in test_mkfifo (func=0x4000000000002c88
    print=1 '\001') at ../../gltests/test-mkfifo.h:46
46        ASSERT (errno == EEXIST || errno == EINVAL);
(gdb) up
#5  0x4000000000004678 in main () at ../../gltests/test-mkfifo.c:46
46        return test_mkfifo (mkfifo, true);

The value of errno:

(gdb) p errno   
$1 = 21

Which, according to /usr/include/sys/errno.h, is

#define EISDIR          21      /* Is a directory               */

Oddly enough, this is not a documented return value for errno in the
mkfifo(3) man page.

(I'm more than happy to investigate this kind of thing; it's just
helpful for me to know what I should focus on first.)
