I am building LFS 6.0. The test suite for perl in chapter 6 indicates 2
failures out of 881 or so test run. The tests failed are:

Failed Test             Stat Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of Failed
../lib/Net/hostent.t       6  1536     7   11 157.14%  2-7
../lib/Net/t/hostname.t                2    1  50.00%  1
60 tests and 470 subtests skipped.
Failed 2/881 test scripts, 99.77% okay. 7/84726 subtests failed, 99.99%

As far as I can tell, the tests fail because some issues with hostname
and domainname getting functions. I wonder if such a behaviour is expected
since network environment is not yet defined while chrooted.
Thenx for your concern.
