In addition release tests are not intended to be run at build-time by
upstream and often contain tests that are fragile and often break
without affecting the functionality of the package.

That should not happen and does not for me. Just like gregor I get
Depends: libdbi-perl, perl (>= 5.10.1-14), perl-dbdabi-94,
perlapi-5.10.1, libc6 (>= 2.4), libsqlite3-0 (>= 3.7.2)
when building the package (and did so in July as well when I committed
these changed to out SVN).
