Sure. This change was made by Ansgar Burchardt. The reason was to try
to avoid situations as we had in #589051 [1] and #589052 [2].

 [1] http://bugs.debian.org/589051
 [2] http://bugs.debian.org/589052

The idea was to try to avoid (indirect) build-depends on itself of
packages. These release tests only are t/97_meta.t, t/98_pod.t and

The t/97_meta.t tests that the META.yml matches current
specifications. Similarly t/98_pod.t is test if the POD documentation
is valid and t/99_pmv.t to test if the minimum needed Perl version
declared matches really the syntax. 

In any case I have Cc'ed Ansgar if he would like to do any further
comments on this.

Thanks for you time and bests
