Forgive me if I'm wrong on this, because I'm only guessing here, but
isn't that a duplicated step? That is, given an installation and a
configuration of a package with no errors, isn't that verified enough?
If the verify script ever produced a different result from after the
install/configure stages then the package is erroneous.
Like I said, it's a guess. :-)
