I hope this makes it into 5.8.2, so finally, we will be able to test
binary distributions...

Maybe, while you are playing, you can address two more issues:

  a) no Perl distribution should go out with

	make minitest

     failing.  [This creates problems when miniperl is build wrong,
     but the test suite for miniperl returns some noise, or would not
     run at all.]

  b)    cd t; mv perl perl-hidden; PERL=`pwd`/perl-hidden ./pert-hidden TEST

     should succeed (the last time I checked, some tests were not
     paying attension to $PERL).
