    I try to install sanitizer on a gentoo linux box. Having done so, I did
    the testall mentionned in the documentation. However, three tests
    failed and one got skipped.

    I suppose that the sailure of sanitizer.default is due to LANG setting
    differences between my server and the reference platform.

    I am not sure whether the two failures are due to the fact that I use
    revision 1.60.

    The skipping of one does sound to bad. What is it for?

          - Architecture: Intel
          - Operating system: Gentoo Linux
          - Perl version: revision 5.0 version 8 subversion 0

    I am not sure whether my config is of importance I attached it anyway.

    I am trying to figure out how to send messages to this list without
    having them rejected... therefore no attachements this time.

    One or more tests failed! There are two possible reasons for this:

          1) Something was fixed, and your test-case results need to be updated.
          2) I (the author) broke something.

    Please check the change-log to see which it is. If it's number 1), then
    just replace the .ok file with the .out file generated by the failed test,
    in your result directory.

    Otherwise - if you think something is broken (case 2), please send the
    following info to

          - Architecture (e.g. Sparc, Intel, Alpha. ...)
          - Operating system (e.g. RedHat 6.2, Solaris 8, HP-UX, ...)
          - Perl version (the output of "perl -V")
          - Any relevant Anomy configuration files (e.g. for the sanitizer).
          - Copies of all result files for the failed tests (they should
    have the
            extensions .ok, .out, .diff and .log).
