+The Makefile shortcut targets for many rarely (or never) used testing and
+profiling targets have been removed, or merged into the only other Makefile
+target that uses them. Specifically, these targets are gone, along with
+documentation that referenced them or explained how to use them:
+
+    check.third check.utf16 check.utf8 coretest minitest.prep
+    minitest.utf16 perl.config.dashg perl.config.dashpg
+    perl.config.gcov perl.gcov perl.gprof perl.gprof.config perl.pixie
+    perl.pixie.atom perl.pixie.config perl.pixie.irix perl.third
+    perl.third.config pureperl purecovperl quantperl test.deparse
+    test.taintwarn test.third test.torture test.utf16 test.utf8
+    test_notty.deparse test_notty.third test_prep.third torturetest
+    ucheck ucheck.third ucheck.utf16 ucheck.valgrind utest utest.third
+    utest.utf16 utest.valgrind
+
+It's still possible to run the relevant commands by "hand" - no underlying
+functionality has been removed.
