Guess the config will have to be tweaked, the default setup didn't
choose those options,
perlcurrent.cfg came out to be (comments removed):

----
# This is a configuration file for the smoke tester.

-Duseithreads

#-Uuseperlio

-Duse64bitint
-Duselongdouble
-Dusemorebits
==
/-DDEBUGGING/

-DDEBUGGING

And when I tried runing smokecurrent.sh in the background:
./smokecurrent.sh </dev/null &>/dev/null &
I came back a bit later and the job had moved to a Stopped state
around this part of the smokecurrent.log:

...
t/op/exp ...................................................... ok
t/op/fh ....................................................... ok
t/op/filehandle ............................................... ok

And would not continue until I placed it in the foreground for a
while.  Not sure why the next test
t/op/filetest.t was hanging up on being in the background redirected.
Maybe some confusion of
being in a terminal but not in the foreground?  Wonder if it will have
problems running from cron...

It's 3:40 into the run and still not through the first build but I
don't know how long it was stopped after
the filehandle test.  Will check tomorrow and see if it actually finishes. :)
