First of all .... a failed make test does not mean that the module has a problem. But even then if for satisfaction u need to run it, type the following commands on you shell prompt:

# export DBI_DSN=dbi:Pg:dbname=<database>
# export DBI_USER=<username>
# export DBI_PASS=<password>

and then run the make test. Also ensure that the database server is running and accessible.
