AIX smoke failures
Message ID:
I'm looking at the smoker failures.  We're in pretty good shape except 
for HP-UX and AIX, and some transient failures in some other platforms.

This email covers HP-UX.

I tried running blead manually on  HP-UX - B.11.23/64.  The smoker shows 
many many failures.  I only got one.  Here's two lines from my, so someone can check that I'm not doing a thinko:

  config_args='-des -Dusedevel -DDEBUGGING -Duse64bitall'

I tried with and without -O optimization flags, without a difference.

I traced the failure I got, in cpan/Encode/t/encoding-locale.t.  (This 
also is one of the smoker failures.)  It appears that this .t is not 
skipping tests it should be.  But this wouldn't show up except that the 
locale it is finding is named roman8, but it has tables instead for a 
locale named hp-roman8, and these don't match exactly.  So if those 
tables were renamed, it would work. I believe.

But I don't know the source for the many many failures that show up in 
the smoker.
