Yeah, I would second the suggestion to just use "prove". However, if for
some reason that isn't an option, note that the stock harness stores
results in test-results/. You can just grep it like this:

  grep 'failed [^0]' test-results/*

to find out which scripts had failures, which is usually sufficient (if
you're running the tests in parallel, you won't have any sensible output
anyway, so your first step is going to be to rerun the failed script
with "-v" anyway).

But really, "prove" is much nicer, and I recommend it unless you don't
have perl on your system.
