Known bug in SA 3.2.1 and 3.1.8. Due to a bug in the test scripts, it
will always fail if make test is run as root.

There's a trick to get CPAN to do a make-test as non-root (which I
forget what is)..

The other alternatives would be:
use a source-tarball and manually build/test it as a non-root user
then su to root for the make install stage
tell CPAN to force install
wait for 3.2.2 to be released, which fixes this issue.
