Please be sure that your LC_ALL and/or LANG variables are set to "C"
before running make check.  I thought that I had modified this inside
the Perl scripts that drive the tests, but apparently I didn't get it
right; there was a bug report about it (this has been fixed in CVS now

If that fixes the problem, I'm interested to see what locale you were
using before... it seems odd to me that someone would make a translation
that changes the string ".  Stop." to ". Stop." (if you look at the
fatal() function in misc.c you'll see where this string comes from).
