dmake test failure building 5.8.0 on Windows 2000

P: n/a
Because Active State haven't yet built the additional modules I will
require I'm trying to build Perl 5.8.0 from source using dmake and the
Borland C++ command line compiler from the cmd.exe command shell on a
MS Windows 2000 (Service Pack 2) machine.

The build stage appears to go correctly but dmake test generates a
failure with /lib/Test/Simple/t/fail-more.t. I don't follow the
detailed working of this test but it appears to be checking the
working of the Test::More module which, because it is used in writing
test scripts, rather undermines my confidence in the majority of
passed tests.

Any ideas on the nature of the problem and how I might overcome it?

The outputs from perl -V and perl lib\Test\Simple\t\fail-more.t
follow:
