That's what I thought, too.
Actully, I'd have thought that perlivp was exactly this: running the
core test suite against the installed perl.

And, while at it, on my system perlivp prints out a huge load of
missing files. Apart from suidperl and Memoize/, these
are .bs files and manual pages. But the huge list makes it very hard
to immedeately see that anything relevant is missing.
