[Catalyst] trouble upgrading Catalyst to 5.7001

Long time listener, first time caller.  :)  I'm developing a Catalyst
app on FreeBSD 6.0-R using Perl 5.8.7 from ports and Catalyst 5.6902
which I install via CPAN.  Everything works fine. 

I decided to upgrade my Catalyst to the latest Catalyst-Runtime-5.7001
and it is failing on make test:

Failed Test                  Stat Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of Failed
t/live_priorities.t             4  1024    28    4  14.29%  23-26
t/unit_core_uri_for_action.t    5  1280    28    5  17.86%  3 7 13-14 16

The live_priorities tests are returning the "Please come back later"
page instead of the proper value for all of the priorities/multimethod
tests.  I turned debugging on for the test app, and I can see that
Catalyst::Controller::Priorities::MultiMethod loads as a component, but
make test is throwing "Error: Unknown resource "priorities/multimethod". 

I haven't checked at the other test failures yet.  The debugging output
is rather verbose, especially with VERBOSE=1 in the Makefile, so I
didn't include it here, but I have it available.  I think perhaps
someone may have anticipated a problem, because the test file reads:

        #   Test if content matches expectations.
        #   TODO This might flood the screen with the catalyst
        #        page. So I don't know it is a good idea.

I Googled for this test, and didn't find anything, and browsing for
failed 5.7001 installed didn't bring up anything helpful.  Can someone
please point me in the right direction, or let me know how much badness
will result in a "force install"?
