One enhancement for `port test` that I would like to see would be an option
to run the test phase automatically instead of having to explicitly call it

Also test phase dependencies would be useful, especially if we are talking
about CPAN ports, because I know when using CPAN manually it would often
print a message about some dependencies only being needed for testing:
