GCC builds failing many tests on Windows
Message ID:
I've just tried gcc builds for the first time in a while and was
slightly shocked at the number of test failures. I swear these both
passed all tests (apart from one or two known failures) the last time
I tried. Results are attached for's 4.8.1 and's native 32-bit 4.8.0.

(By contrast, the same gcc-4.8.1 builds maint-5.22 fine with
only two test failures: one is a Known Problem with that compiler (see,
the other is the consistently misbehaving dist/IO/t/io_sock.t. So I'm
confident the problems are in blead; it's not just my build system
that's fallen into a state of disrepair.)

I will try to find time to look at a few before the 5.23.4 release on
Tuesday, but fixing everything may take a little longer than that.
