New GUSI, New Alpha?

[ #369 ]
I think I am about ready for a new alpha. I *might* even put one out tonight. I have a build working great, almost all of the test suite passing, a lot of new modules added (in macos/bundled_lib/ and macos/bundled_ext/), and Matthias' latest GUSI has fixed most of the major remaining bugs. My problem is that I need to get perforce and CVS synched up. I might just release anyway. I dunno.

Anyway, here are the only tests not fully working. I think about half need to be ported, and half represent real bugs. I haven't looked much into any of these.

# bugs?
:lib:db-btree.t
:lib:db-hash.t
:lib:db-recno.t
:lib:dosglob.t
:lib:ndbm.t
:op:die_exit.t
:op:sprintf.t

# porting needed
:pod:find.t
:pod:pod2usage.t
:pod:podselect.t

# don't know
:lib:ftmp-mktemp.t
:lib:ftmp-posix.t
:lib:ftmp-security.t
:lib:ftmp-tempfile.t
:lib:posix.t
:op:magic.t
:op:misc.t
:pragma:warnings.t

So I think maybe tonight I will just release, and then come back to CVS/Perforce later this week. Release early and often and all that.
