The 'fixes' are actually optional data packages that are required 
to run the tests. The test are in part a validation on the content of
the data packages.

Assuming the test failed because the optional packages where not
properly installed:
1) You need to run 'make install' before 'make check'.
2) GP looks for directories 'galdata' and 'elldata' in the directory
reported by 'default(datadir)'.
3) The only functions affected are polgalois (need galdata.tgz) and
ellsearch and ellidentify (need elldata.tgz).

You can see why the test failed in the file
Olinux-*/ellglobalred-sta.dif and Olinux-*/galois-sta.dif
