I would as well had I known. Thanks for the tip. I'll look into
it.

Not sure why you're seeing it. In fact I had 0 (zero) failures on my
testsuite run. :-)

ext/Sys/Syslog/t/00-load......................................ok
ext/Sys/Syslog/t/constants....................................ok
ext/Sys/Syslog/t/syslog.......................................ok

See below for more about the testsuite.

Good to know. Thanks, Greg.

I'm interested in what fails. I suppose I'll need to look at the URL
you posted, as I said I didn't have any failures. I left the syntax
as DJ had it simply because it didn't dawn on me that it wasn't
required.

Thanks for your interest in our development and especially your
comments. It is very nice of you to be helping out like this.
