Here are relevant excerpts from the original bug report:

This is a bug report for perl from (Steffen Beyer),
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.8.0.

When I built Perl 5.8.0 using Microsoft's Visual C++ 6.0 compiler,
I got 3 errors (the only ones!) in op/magic when I ran "nmake test".

I just wanted to let you know, just in case.

I used the following Makefile (from perl-5.8.0/win32):

##### [ excerpts ]
INST_DRV        = \Programme
INST_TOP        = $(INST_DRV)\perl580
USE_MULTI = define
USE_IMP_SYS = define
USE_PERLIO      = define
CCTYPE         = MSVC60
CCHOME          = $(MSVCDIR)
CCINCDIR        = $(CCHOME)\include
CCLIBDIR        = $(CCHOME)\lib
EMAIL          = (Steffen Beyer)

Can anyone on Win32 indicate whether this problem persists on supported
versions of Perl (5.14 or 5.16) and supported versions of Windows?

Thank you very much.
