I successfully built and tested Perl 5.20.0 on Darwin/PPC when it was
released two months ago. I built and tested blead today for the first
time since then. I was surprised to get a test failure in
When I re-directed the test's STDOUT and STDERR to a file, I got a
tremendous amount of "# Unexpected nm output" lines. For the full
output, see the tarball attached.
Here is the short version of the output.

I am not getting this failure on Linux x86_64. I have not yet tried
this on Darwin x86_64.
Has anything happened lately that would have an impact on this?
Thank you very much.
