io/eintr.t is skipped on non-devel builds. It tests what happens when a
sig handler does IO (e.g. closing a file handle) in the middle of IO (it
used to SEGV). On many plaforms such IO isn't interruptible, so the test
can't be done. Looks like your system is one of those. There's a big
'skip_all' near the top of the test file that presumably needs tweaking.

In economics, the exam questions are the same every year.
They just change the answers.
