Please follow the instructions in the output you quote below.  That is,

Please now run

	cd t
	./perl harness

This will tell you which test failed.  Without knowing which test failed, 
it is impossible to guess whether the failure is important or not.

Once you know which test failed, you can run that individual test for more 
information.  Sett eh INSTALL document's section on "make test".

If you have configured a shared libperl.so, you also have to follow these 
instructions:
