Ugh. Which version of perl is that? I.e., what does perl -V print?
After the release, I'll consider adding a require_perl_times_ function
that will cause that test to be skipped on such systems.

Hi Jose,
Thanks for testing on those less-common systems and for reporting the results.
I guess you know that you can avoid those skipped tests if you first
install libpcre.

Without PCRE, grep's -P option does not work. I've become so dependent
on that (for command-line use at least), I would never accept its
absence on any system I use :-)
