I would say it is a bad thing.  Perhaps one of the mac users could say 
whether this is a known bug.

I think the CPANPLUS.pm in question is the one in the core which you're 
trying to install.

Earlier in the test output, there should be some complaints from the 
tests themselves which might shed some light on the problem.

I think there might be a shortcut to repeat just these failing tests, 
though you might have to play with cd to get into the same state (look 
for where make said 'entering directory' or such.)

  make test TEST_FILES=lib/CPANPLUS/Dist/Build/t

So malloc calls a timeout and starts rummaging around the free chain,
sorting things out, and merging adjacent small free blocks into larger
blocks. This takes 3 1/2 days.
