Tests and production servers definitely do not mix!

However, the fact you're using a 2004.2 server is probably what's 
choking the tests. The tests are carried out in a server started in a 
subdirectory of the p4perl build environment; all they need is a 'p4d' 
in the PATH. If you ensure that the p4d binary in the PATH is a 2011.1 
(or 2010.2) server, do the tests pass then?

For example:

$ mkdir p4tmp
$ cd p4tmp
$ wget http://www.perforce.com/downloads/perforce/r11.1/bin.linux26x86/p4d
$ chmod 755 p4d
$ export PATH=`pwd`:$PATH

Then go to your p4perl build directory and run 'make test'. If it all 
works, you can remove the p4tmp directory.
