Sorry I didn't make that clearer - the results below were generated
_completely_ outside of portage; for each test I manually unpacked,
perl Makefile.pl, make, make test in the traditional way. The only
thing I can see that was different was the perl I used (same make, same
version of Extutils::Command, etc. ).

I guess I will proceed to get into big trouble by building a perl in
portage (overriding the standard) with the configuration I used in
my /home/beau perl. If my system is still running :) I'll get back to
you soon.

PS: Sorry about posting the patch on the list - will bugzilla from now on.
