Sorry I'm so late responding to this, but I was away from
the Net most of last week.

This is more or less standard on Win9X/ME. There are
several issues with 'make test' there. The first is that 9X
doesn't actually inmplement all the system calls that perl
thinks it does (e.g. link() or flock()). Secondly, and more
importantly, command.com does not support '2>&1' syntax, so
at times almost all of t/lib/warnings.t has failed because
it doesn't actually recieve the warnings - they go out on
STDERR, but the since command.com didn't redirect that to
STDOUT, warnings.t doesn't see them. This is not to say
that these results are _good_, but they're not quite as bad
as they look.
