Here is a report run by hand on Win98, in which I avoid running any tests.

Automated smoke report for 5.9.0 patch 22203 on MSWin32 - 4.10 (x86)
(7106) using gcc version 3.2.3 (mingw special 20030504-1)
Report by Test::Smoke v1.18.10 (perl 5.8.2) [19 minutes 53 seconds]

O = OK F = Failure(s), extended report at the bottom
X = test(s) failed under TEST but not under harness
? = still running or test results not (yet) available
Build failures during: - = unknown or N/A
c = Configure, m = make, M = make (after miniperl), t = make test-prep

22203 Configuration (common) -DCCHOME=C:\m -DCCTYPE=GCC -Dgcc_v3_2
------------ ----------------------------------------------------------------

Summary: PASS-so-far

MANIFEST did not declare 'Policy.sh'
MANIFEST did not declare 'win32/.makefile.mk.swp'
MANIFEST did not declare 'win32/.smoke.mk.swp'
MANIFEST did not declare 'win32/makefile.mk~'
MANIFEST did not declare 'win32/smoke.mk'
MANIFEST did not declare 'win32/smoke.mk.old'
MANIFEST did not declare 'win32/smoke.mk.tmp'

I did some cheating. I rewrote smoke.mk with group recipes, rather
than create makefile.95. I guess I should now try sticking closer
to the usual install procedure and add IS_WIN95 options in

I also monkied around with makefile.mk. Patch 22203 doesn't contain

As for the tests, in earlier smoking attempts I haven't been able
to run all the tests. I get further with a Bourne shell than with
command.com, but even running dmake test from the command line in
the mingw shell, although I get a test report, dmake hangs after
that and doesn't exit. Running from the command line in
command.com, dmake hangs quite early in the tests at comp/cpp.

There are various other one-line things I did to get this far, but nothing
worthy of a patch I think.

I am interested in getting the tests to run, or at least removing the tests
that hang the smoke, but need an alternative to trial and error methods to
do it, because of the number of the tests.
