[Slackbuilds-users] perl-gtk2 fails at make test

Well I have built perl-gtk2 on multiple systems with 13.37, 13.1 and
various current, both i486 and x86_64 -- and I try very hard not to
have a dirty build system, and would rather pluck out my eyes than use
the closed source nvidia driver ;-) -- and there are usually some
tests that fail.  Well, actually I can't remember even *once* that the
tests succeeded.  Despite failures, the built packages have always
worked acceptably.  So I just delete 'make test'.  At a guess, there
are race conditions in some tests, and/or they tickle various bugs in
various versions of various xorg drivers on various hardware, etc etc

Just disable the tests and be happy :D
