 make test

when installing perl 5, I did make test, and got an error in op/exec test 5

so I ran t/op/exec.t and got:

ok 1
ok 2
ok 3
ok 4
not ok 5
ok 6
ok 7
ok 8

I looked at the source, but did not really understand it... test 5 was:

if ((system "/bin/sh -c 'exit 1'") != 256) { print "not "; }
print "ok 5\n";

I read the README file, but it was not very helpful, just told me to run
the test by itself.  

any help would be greatly appreaciated, and please reply via email, as my
newsfeed is quite unstable...
