The problems of make test are only problems of the test suite (for example
because hash are outputed in a different order (which is quite legal) or
error messages have changed)

In in the first place I will make Embperl 2.0 work with Perl 5.8.1, but if
the changes are easy to backport I will release an 1.3.7

At least from the result of make test it should NOT fail. If you are sure
it's an problem of Embperl, please make a small test page that shows the
failure, so I can reproduce it here.

Unfortunately I am out of office from today evening until Nov. 1., so I will
not be able to do anything during the next two weeks.
