make test may report some tests as skipped. They are skipped because you are missing the modules that are needed for these tests to pass. You might want to peek at the contents of each test; you will find them all in the ./t directory. It's possible that you don't need any of the missing modules to get your work done, in which case you shouldn't worry that the tests are skipped.
If you want to make sure that all tests pass, you will need to figure out what modules are missing from your installation. For example, if you see:
modules/cookie......skipping test on this platform
you may want to install the Apache::Cookie module. If you see:
modules/request.....skipping test on this platform
Apache::Request is missing. If you see:
Apache::Cookie and Apache::Request are both part of the libapreq distribution.
modules/psections...skipping test on this platform
Devel::Symdump and Data::Dumper are needed.
Chances are that all of these will be installed if you use CPAN.pm to install Bundle::Apache. We talk about CPAN installations later in this chapter.
