  Log Message:
  -----------
  t/op/pack.t: Get it to pass under 'make minitest'

During preparations for release of perl-5.35.6 we noticed that
t/op/pack.t was failing during 'make minitest', though passing under
'make test'.  Certain tests require Math::BigInt, which in turn now
requires Scalar::Util.  The latter is not available under miniperl.  So
we skip certain tests.

Also, Math::BigInt is now under cpan/, not dist/.

Insert one 'note' so that we can see where we are in the file.  Minor
whitespace improvements.
