If you're aiming to get the package uploaded, this isn't allowed.  You
can't assume an X11 environment, or a network connection, or any such

For the Perl package, I can (and have) disabled the testing for the Debian package. For the python package, it is much more difficult. I thought that xvfb was precisely the tool for this.

But if you just want an easy X11 chroot, and you already have a
pbuilder chroot, see:

I'll look at this.  Thanks.
