[perl #84688] io/eintr.t test hangs indefinitely

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.13.10.

[Please describe your issue here]

A test io/eintr.t which is invoked at the 'make test' phase
of the Perl installation on a FreeBSD hangs indefinitely
(i.e. until interrupted manually).

Looking at the io/eintr.t more closely, there are two instances
of a 'print' which never complete, and are not interrupted by
the alarm timer:
- in the 'close during print' subtest
- in the 'die during print' subtest

If I comment out the '$st = print $out $buf' and
the '$st = eval { print $out $buf }' the io/eintr.t
finishes (with reported failures naturally).

Other that that, it seems that perl installs and runs alright,
including the remaining self-tests.
