Ironically, I might not be able to test this one. I expect perl's 'make check' to fail which will avoid it being installed on AIX; every other box now has 5.10.0 as I got sick of inconsistent, outdated, or outright missing perl for coreutils' 'make check' ;-). (Except for Irix, but that one didn't have the problem. However AIX does, so I think I will still be able to verify there, but that's one of the slower machines.)

Anyway I'm intending to do another run, but I first need to generate a usable no-decl-after-stmt patch. (I'm assuming you didn't update it?)

Well that was interesting. IIRC there were other 'perl -f' failures, were those similarly addressed? Anyway, I got a different (but not unreasonable) failure:

FAIL: df/total-verify
+ perl check-df space

5845627536 != 5845627534 at check-df line 14, <> line 19.

+ fail=1

...which means the test fails if something else writes to the disk while the test is running :-).
