Bleed Perl on BeOS 5

[ #3746 ]
I tried building Perl 5.7.3 on BeOS just for kicks tonight. It kinda-sorta worked. I got these warnings during make test:

lib/Tie/File/t/16_handle............FAILED at test 39
ext/POSIX/t/sigaction...............FAILED at test 13
ext/POSIX/t/waitpid.................FAILED at test 1
ext/File/Glob/t/basic...............FAILED at test 3
t/op/magic..........................FAILED at test 24

One result of the waitpid issue is that every time you run a program, you'll get this warning: "Can't ignore signal CHLD, forcing to default".

A quick Google search indicates that Jarkko is at least aware of these issues. Hopefully they'll be fixed by the 5.8 release. I'm also hoping sockets will work (they still don't).
