"make test" is a disaster, and I'd recommend leaving it off for now, 
I've been working on a large changes to that area, as it is unreliable 
based on available hardware, state of serial ports, etc etc.

This appears to be ldsp's common use-case.  :)

Those are very old attempts at packaging (I've dropped the debian dir in 
CVS).  I'd like CPAN and Debian to agree, so 1.002 is "correct".  In 
addition to the test updates, I'll be sorting out the ugliness of the 
version number too.  :)
