testing command: 'sh ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -duseithreads && make 
-j8 test_harness'
FreeBSD-10.3: PASS
FreeBSD-11.0: FAIL: failed test 2 in t/op/alarm.t

When t/op/alarm.t was run individually with:

cd t; ./perl harness -v op/alarm.t; cd -

... it PASSed.

These tests were performed in a virtual machine run by VMware sitting on 
Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS.  That may have adversely affected timings during 
make_harness.  So this may or may not be a showstopper.

Attaching relevant files.

Thank you very much.
