At the QA Hackathon in Berlin, Chad Granum asked me how to run all of the core
tests in verbose mode.  I said, "Uh...." and went looking.  None of my guesses
worked.  I looked into the source.  You can run ./t/harness -v, but you can't
get the -v in there from make, which does test_prep.

Any reason not to pass HARNESS_VERBOSE's value in for verbose, so that one can
run "HARNESS_VERBOSE=1 make test_harness"?  Did I miss some existing way?

Chad suggested that this makes a test or two fail.  I will look into that,
assuming this isn't pointless for some other reason.
