When you run vms/test.com, it's running t/TEST by default. Isn't
bailing out early the normal behavior for TEST (as opposed to
harness)?  The abort messages are just the usual result of
transmogrifying a generic unixy failure exit to a generic VMS failure
exit:

$ perl -e "exit 1;"
%SYSTEM-F-ABORT, abort
