Test failure of ../lib/ExUtils/t/Constant.t in perl 5.8.0 under IRIX 6.5.20m (IP35 processor)

P: n/a
I just compiled (but did not install) perl 5.8.0 on an SGI Origin 300
server (IP35) running IRIX 6.5.20m.

Make test reported one test error, which I narrowed down to
.../lib/ExUtils/t/Constant.t using harness. I ran the test separately,
and got the following detailed error report:

How will this affect the running of perl? How do I go about finding
and fixing the error?

Thanks in advance
