From @mbreese

Based on this patch/test​:
https://rt.perl.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=128020

I apologize for not filing this with perlbug, but this error was
encountered while compiling a new version of Perl (5.28.0) and I
didn't want to use an older installed version to submit the bug.

When testing, the bug that was patched in the above link, is marked as
a failure if the user's $PATH is longer than 1000 characters long.
This is because the PATH variable doesn't contain any whitespace that
can be used to easily split the line with Text​::Wrap.

I have not patch for this, but the workaround is to explicitly set the
PATH to something shorter than 1000 characters when testing.

Can you provide *as attachments* (rather than inline)​:

* The output of the failing test file(s). For example​:

#####
cd t;./perl harness -v ../lib/perl5db.t 2>&1 | tee ../test_failure_output.txt; cd -
#####

* The output of './perl -Ilib -V' from the perl you were compiling.

That will assist us in identifying the problem.

Thank you very much.
