Trying to understand t/lib/1_compile.t
Message ID:
This .t is failing on os390.  It is getting 0, and the expected result 
is greater than 0.  But this makes no sense to me.  What is being tested 
apparently is the number of modules that don't have tests for them. 
These apparently were in __DATA__, but that is now empty.  It succeeds 
on Linux because it adds Net::Cmd and Net::POP3.

If the goal is to get the number down to 0, why fail when you get there, 
unless it is to claim Schwern's prize money outlined in the comment in 
the file:

My guess is that this test is no longer applicable.
