Hi Lance,
the reason you are seeing this seems to be a failing software-test which ships
natively with tor. I'm not experienced enough to comment on the nature of this
behaviour, for what I see it might as well be a bug.

Anyway, on my RasPi running Raspbian I had no problems compiling
tor- with this: debuild -rfakeroot -uc -us
Try it and maybe report back!

All the best,
