build dep on perl packages ..

Hi all,

when building a perl based application packages (here my logtrend packages, (by the way,
for the sole 2-3 users of it, a new fix_alot_unfuck_release is due soonish)) :

jdive@gardafou:~/t/logtrend-linuxagent$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
# Add here commands to compile the package.
/usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

Writing Makefile for LogTrend::LinuxAgent
/usr/bin/make OPTIMIZE="-O2 -g -Wall"

We argued stevenk and myself on this: he says it should be a build dep, i say no, it does not
avoid build at all and would force you to install all the depend and sub depend package on your build
box which is not good i reckon. Now, what is *the* answer ? include or not include ?
