[SOLVED] Re: make test failures, second try...
Message ID:
Found it! :->

When I built perl 5.8.0 (by hand, not CPAN) I didn't find an easy way
to let it be automatically installed as perl-5.8.0 (I'm sure there is one,
but I couldn't work it out). So, I let it build & install as 'perl',
and then changed the name to include the version, restoring the 'perl'
as a link to my previuos version.

The problem was in the that the new install built - it
contained 2 references to '/usr/local/bin/perl', under the names
'perl5' and 'perlpath'. Modified these, and make test passed all tests
without any trouble.

Found this out after running LWP's TEST-script under the debugger, where
I saw how Test::Harness read data from

Thanks for all the suggestions, I was really confused for a while! :->
