Here are relevant excerpts from the original bug report:

#####
This is a bug report for perl from sb@engelschall.com (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_ITHREADS = define
USE_IMP_SYS = define
USE_PERLIO      = define
CCTYPE         = MSVC60
CCHOME          = $(MSVCDIR)
CCINCDIR        = $(CCHOME)\include
CCLIBDIR        = $(CCHOME)\lib
EXTRALIBDIRS    =
EMAIL          = sb@engelschall.com (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.
Jim Keenan
