`make -k check' of 5.96 has a rather serious problem on Solaris 8.
Let's say, at one point it causes a fork bomb, I see lots of processes
of the form
| sh -c ../../../coreutils-5.96/tests/misc/sort -m 'empty' 'f' > m1.O 2> m1.E

in the `ps' output.  Before I could even get make interrupted, I
had to kill lots of processes from another shell.

The last test before that was
| PASS: ../../../coreutils-5.96/tests/misc/head-pos

This further process is are still listed:
| perl -w -I../../../coreutils-5.96/tests/misc/.. -MCoreutils -- -

I don't know coreutils much at all, so I'd appreciate help in how to
proceed here.
