Ahhh, OK.  I wrongly assumed that would be some magic since in the
bioperl case it worked without this extra means.

Yup, fixed.

After safely landing in Berlin (from Debian Med sprint in Bukarest) I
tried with your hints and the only remaining issue seems to be:

t/00.compile.t          (Wstat: 3840 Tests: 90 Failed: 15)
  Failed tests:  1, 3, 5, 7, 10, 15, 17-18, 29, 31, 33, 35
                41, 45, 47
  Non-zero exit status: 15

I wonder how these numbers relate to the tests inside the test file and
what might be the recommended procedure:  Patching single tests (those
1, 3, 5, ...) or the wimpy way to exclude the whole file.  May be there
is some hint how these tests might pass but I personally have no idea.

Kind regards
