I'd definitely recommend getting a newer version, from git. The problem in
this case is a Perl error in the test script itself. Later development has
fixed that problem and many others. I suggest you install git from whatever
package system your operating system offers, and then run the three commands
at the very bottom of the page on http://www.bucardo.org:

git-clone http://bucardo.org/bucardo.git/
git-clone http://bucardo.org/dbixsafe.git/
git-clone http://bucardo.org/testdynamic.git/

This will make three directories under your current directory. Go into each
directory in turn, starting with the last and working your way to the first.
In each directory, type:

perl Makefile.PL
make install

Note that the "make install" step will probably need to be run as root.

Once you've run those steps, your tests should work much better. Versions of
Bucardo much more recent than 3.0.9 are in production use in several places;
the fact that it's not the version packaged on the website shouldn't scare
