    (perl #133462) add specific test run instructions to README.win32
    README.win32 provides generally standalone instructions for running
    and testing perl, but unlike INSTALL didn't provide instructions
    for repeating individual tests.
    Both perlguts and INSTALL provide instructions on repeating individual
    tests, and considering at the point a user want this information they
    don't have a working perl installation, I think it's reasonable to
    repeat it here.
