Sure enough:

OS X 10.6.8, Perl 5.16.3: all tests pass
OS X 10.6.8, Perl 5.18.0: all tests pass

NetBSD 6.1, Perl 5.16.3: 1 test script with a failed test case
NetBSD 6.1, Perl 5.18.0: 21 test scripts with at least one failed test case

So that's a big regression, and supports my suspicion that Perl is
doing something wrong (which ikiwiki tikis, I mean tickles). I can't
look at this more right now, but here's the log from that last run:
