This is really beside the point.  I was not referring to the test
suite that comes with a module.

Once again, *every packaging system* I have tried comes up short for
any but the most basic needs of Perl hacking.  Modules are missing,
out of date, or just plain broken (i.e., do not build/test/install
cleanly); especially so for complex systems of modules (e.g., Moose) .
 I chose the perlbrew/cpanminus route as a lower resistance path to
getting my work done.  (Note that I am not saying that all CPAN
modules build/test/install cleanly under OS X.)  YMMV.
