	self-test of glib2 fails - this is for glib2-2.12.0, but 2.11 had
        the same problem already.

	The errror seen is this:
	===> Testing for glib2-2.12.0
	/usr/pkg/bin/gmake  check-recursive
	gmake[5]: Leaving directory `/home/obj/pkg/devel/glib2/work/glib-2.12.0/tests/gobject'
	/usr/pkg/bin/gmake  check-TESTS
	gmake[5]: Entering directory `/home/obj/pkg/devel/glib2/work/glib-2.12.0/tests/gobject'
	arithmetic expression: syntax error: " % 256"
	gmake[5]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 2
	gmake[5]: Leaving directory `/home/obj/pkg/devel/glib2/work/glib-2.12.0/tests/gobject'
	gmake[4]: *** [check-am] Error 2
	gmake[4]: Leaving directory `/home/obj/pkg/devel/glib2/work/glib-2.12.0/tests/gobject'
	gmake[3]: *** [check] Error 2

	the problematic line is in gobject/Makefile:


	which normally works fine in my shell (ksh), but somehow fails
	when called from Makefile.  Seems standard "make" calls /bin/sh -
	it works fine if called like this:

	     make SHELL=/bin/ksh test

	cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel/glib2
        make test
	no good suggestion, maybe forcing "SHELL=/bin/ksh" in the pkg
