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.

simplify.multipart: ok

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).
