! The following tests are still failing for Perl 5.7.3 under QNX 6.1.0:
  
    op/sprintf.........................FAILED at test 91
    lib/Benchmark......................FAILED at test 26
  
  This is due to a bug in the C library's printf routine.
  printf("'%e'", 0. ) produces '0.000000e+0', but ANSI requires
! '0.000000e+00'. QNX has acknowledged the bug and it should be
! fixed in 6.2.0.
