suidperl lacks tests
Message ID:
Interesting testing challenge for the qa gurus :
suidperl has no tests.
I fixed as 26940 a regression in suidperl that I discovered because a
colleague was playing with mod_perl and 5.8.8-RC1. Tests would have
allowed to detect this (maybe).
However, to test suidperl, you need a suidperl, which means that you
already ran make install as root. Moreover the .t files must be setuid
root. That pretty sums up the problem :)
