Bug#760714: lintian: false positive missing-runtime-tests-field (Tests vs. Test-Command)

Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.26
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-perl@lists.debian.org

We're adopting a standard autopkgtest control file with pkg-perl packages
with entries of this form:

 Test-Command: /usr/share/pkg-perl-autopkgtest/runner build-deps
 Depends: @, @builddeps@, pkg-perl-autopkgtest

This causes lintian to output a warning:

 librpc-xml-perl source: missing-runtime-tests-field tests

However, the specification clearly says that _either_ ``Tests`` or
``Test-Command:`` must be present, so the warning seems to be incorrect.

See the libxml-parser-perl or libgnupg-interface-perl packages for an
example test case.
