Thanks for reporting this, I was not aware of this issue affecting Linux and self-compiled Perls specifically, even though I was aware it affected BSD/macOS (one of the reasons I decided to skip fileevent tests on those platforms).

A better solution to this will probably involve eval { require 'sys/ioctl.ph' } and skipping if $@ catches anything, then I can just leave the tests as TODO on BSD/macOS.
Here's what I ended up with: https://github.com/chrstphrchvz/perl-tcl-ptk/commit/75abce83f7e

For reference, I had also asked on PerlMonks why I couldn't put a require 'sys/ioctl.ph' statement in the test without breaking FIONREAD() usage inside Tcl::pTk: https://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1230761

I will probably upload another release to see if this and the other top reason for FAIL reports are now addressed.
