It would affect the build output if one of the tests failed, which might happen
for instance when the package came to be built on an architecture you can't test

The modules concerned are all available in Extras so there's no real hardship in
installing them, and if you don't want them around on a long-term basis you
could always "rpm -e" them afterwards. Better still, you could do test builds in
mock and then those modules would never need to be installed on your system at all.

Most of the perl module packages I've come across in Extras have buildreqs for
all modules used in their test suites that are available in Core or Extras,

That's why I didn't ask you to include that one as a buildreq :-) Unless you'd
like to package that one too...
