When running make, I get following error on Debian Jessie:

    Could you please:

    perl t/97-pod.t

    And include the full output here?

    These are POD syntax errors but I can't get them in the stock svn tree. I am checking the release right now to see what may have gone wrong there.

    (Nope, stock release looks good too)

    I found the test transcript at http://www.privatepaste.com/23ea9319a2 (via the facebook posting).

    I am not sure which version is being installed but I can't reproduce these errors with either stock 1.3.34 or current branches/1.3. It is possible these are from an older version and something slipped by.

    At any rate these are syntax errors in the developer documentation (POD) that is used to generate manual pages in the make process. These tests are not intended to be routinely run by end users and can safely be ignored (the tests only run if you have modules that allow you to test POD syntax which is not the usual case).
