Thanks for the report.
However, note that the latest is 2.3:
and it has numerous bug fixes over 2.2.

I'm not surprised that when you build --without-readline,
some tests fail.  That is an unusual way to build.
However, the first few failures in the output you included
are due to the lack of a mktemp program that accepts the --tmp option:

  +++ mktemp -d --tmp=/scratch/yellin/parted-2.2/tests 
  mktemp: invalid option -- -
  Usage: mktemp [-V] | [-dqtu] [-p prefix] [template]

FTR, you can get the required program by installing the GNU coreutils.
That the parted-2.2's tests rely on that is a bug.
However, that bug is fixed in the latest.

I suggest you try parted-2.4, which should be released in
the next few hours.  These don't yet exist, but they will:
