Your output actually shows 2 tests failing:

You sent a patch for h2xs.t as bug report 29623 - presumably this fixes the
problems you report here with h2xs.t failing.

Am I right in assuming that it doesn't solve the lib/ExtUtils/t/Constant

The message "don't know how to make w" is somewhat strange. Any ideas where
that's coming from? (ie why make thinks that it needs to make a target named
'w'? I've been building perl on FreeBSD for quite a while now and never seen
any error like that, so I'm not sure where to start.
