Why does make test fail buidling perl 5.8.6?

P: n/a
I'm trying to build perl 5.8.6 on an HP-UX 11.11 box.
I can create the Makefile OK, and make doesn't return
any errors. However, when I run make test I receive
the error below regarding the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. So,
I did what it suggested and added the build directory
to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and it still fails.
Any ideas?

-Thanks

Error when running perl 5.8.6 make test on host12:

### in the 't' directory since most (>=80%) of the tests succeeded.
### You may have to set your dynamic library search path,
### LD_LIBRARY_PATH, to point to the build directory:
### setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH `pwd`:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH; cd t; ./perl harness
### LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH; cd t; ./perl harness
### export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH; cd t; ./perl harness
### for csh-style shells, like tcsh; or for traditional/modern
### Bourne-style shells, like bash, ksh, and zsh, respectively.

Stop.

Set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH as stated above:

host12:/scratch/sysadm/perl/perl-5.8.6> set|grep LD
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/scratch/sysadm/perl/perl-5.8.6:/ap/p/oracle/product/9i/lib32
OLDPWD=/scratch/sysadm/perl
