You are looking at revision 1108 (2006-03-21) instead of the
current 1133 (2006-04-05) one.
The formula looks for the worst test result of each test case.
Naturaly "untested" isn't considered a bad result.
There are 44 untested cases in the "-g -fPIC -O" configuration,
thus the highest possible number of global passes could have been
1343 >= 1304 >= 1299: sanity check passed
