I did the following and error went off . All test pass now .

1. get the latest elfutils
wget http://mirror.pnl.gov/fedora/linux/updates/21/SRPMS/e/elfutils-0.161-2.fc21.src.rpm

2. perform the rpmbuild of elfutils
rpmbuild --define "%_topdir `pwd`" -ba SPECS/elfutils.spec

Note that Fedora 19 isn't supported anymore. You might want to upgrade
to a supported version like f20 or f21.

In general tests should all PASS (or SKIP if something is unsupported on
the particular platform/arch) with a normal make check without needing
any specific settings.

It looks like you are trying to build version 0.158 which is more than a
year old now. Please try with the latest elfutils 0.161 release (or
current git) to make sure the issues haven't already been fixed.
