This is run as part of "fulltest", and the NOTESTS return value is apparently considered "false" by GNU make. This causes failure when following step 6 of docs/project/release_manager_guide.pod (testing the tarball).
I was able to verify through other means that all the files mentioned in MANIFEST are present, and that everything seems to work fine. This is just an interruption of an otherwise smooth test process.
