My main compiler platform is xlC 3.6.6 so the following is valid only
for this compiler. I'll do more tests with vac 5.0.2 later.
Compiling work's far better than before... no errors anymore...
but "make test" fails with 3 tests:

lib/b................FAILED at test 10
lib/ftmp-mktemp......FAILED at test 1
lib/io_dir...........FAILED at test 0
Failed 3 test scripts out of 250, 98.80% okay.

t/perl harness gives:

lib/ftmp-mktemp.....ok, 1/9 skipped: test failed probably due to cwd being
on NFS

        Test returned status 0 (wstat 139, 0x8b)
        test program seems to have generated a core

        Test returned status 0 (wstat 139, 0x8b)

lib/open2.t        0   139    ??   ??       %  ??
8 tests and 87 subtests skipped.
Failed 2/258 test scripts, 99.22% okay. 0/12676 subtests failed, 100.00%

lib/b does not give any error here... strange!
lib/ftmp-mktemp seems ok since I'm building on NFS.
What about the other tests? Am I save to use that binary?
