Re: perl v5.8.0 17303 on VMS_VAX V7.2
Message ID:
Final test failure summary.  The following tests failed:

lib/Math/BigInt/t/bare_mbi...........FAILED at test 2326
lib/Math/BigInt/t/bigintpm...........FAILED at test 2326
lib/Math/BigInt/t/sub_mbi............FAILED at test 2326
lib/Math/Trig........................FAILED at test 21
lib/Net/hostent......................FAILED at test 5

Obviously, the first three are the result of the D_FLOAT problem, while the
last one if the Multinet problem.  I don't recall seeing the fourth one
before, though.  Here is the individual test:

Illegal division by zero at [-.lib.math]trig.t line 167.
LIB/MATH/TRIG....FAILED at test 21

I suspect this is also caused by the D_FLOAT problem, judging from the
recent postings here.
