Did you make any changes since the last pretest?

Trying to build this on MS-Windows with MinGW, Perl crashes when
generating texinfo.info:

  if TEXINFO_DEV_SOURCE=1 ; export TEXINFO_DEV_SOURCE ;  top_srcdir=".." ; 
export top_srcdir ;  top_builddir=".." ; export top_builddir ; 
/d/usr/Perl/bin/perl ../tp/texi2any   -I . \
   -o texinfo.info `test -f 'texinfo.texi' || echo './'`texinfo.texi; \
  then \
    rc=0; \
  else \
    rc=$?; \
    $restore $backupdir/* `echo "./texinfo.info" | sed 's|[^/]*$||'`; \
  fi; \
  rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc

error message is related to multithreading in Perl and/or fork()?

This is a different system from the one where I built the pretest.
Here I have Perl v5.20.1, provided by ActiveState.  Could this be
related to this particular version of Perl?  Though I never had any
problems with this Perl version with previous Texinfo releases.
