[PATCH 5.8.1 @19053] Time::HiRes
Message ID:
The test would emit a warning about a non-initialized variable.  (in a
maze of branches my system managed to find one where 'xdefine' file is
not written.)

I did not try to fix another goof (common for Time::HiRes and Encode):
they test for PERL_CORE using some hideous code.  *At least* the check for miniperl in the test should be //i.  But anyway:

 a) I could find no place which would *read* $ENV{PERL_CORE};

 b) The proper way to test for PERL_CORE is test @ARGV for PERL_CORE=1.
