No. dh-make-perl is a *helper* script with different aims. You *can* use it to create official Debian packages, but if you do, you have to check everything it outputs really thoroughly. It is *not* recommended to use dh-make-perl to create those package, but it's also not forbidden or something. I (and i maintain the damn thing) only use it in very special cases. Normally, I just copy over the rules file from one of my other modules and do the rest by hand.
I see. So, since a) it is not recomended to create official packages with dh-make-perl andb) even you you do, you're strongly advised to carefuly examine all autogenerated files
then the decision whether to put $(MAKE) test uncommented is not dh-make-perl's, but packager's.
dh-make-perl can help the packager by reminding him, after each run, that he is responsible for checking everything. If you're willing to accept a patch for this, I'll prepare one in the weekend.
