Hi Pranav,

you write:

> enable core files with:

> [CUT] vcl_timer
> Error: a unit test failed, please do one of:
> make CppunitTest_svgio CPPUNITTRACE="gdb --args"
>     # for interactive debugging on Linux
> make CppunitTest_svgio VALGRIND=memcheck
>     # for memory checking
> make CppunitTest_svgio DEBUGCPPUNIT=TRUE
>     # for exception catching
Did you try one of the above suggestions? There are usually three
reasons a unit test would fail:

* something is truly broken on master (compare with red tinderboxes on
* you have a buggy setup (noticing D-Drive in your path above,
  building on a vfat partition from linux is generally not working)
* you are building on a system, or a particular configure switch
  combination, that is not yet supported & will need manual fixing

Your question does not provide enough context to guess which of the
cases you're hitting.
