  If support for INTERACTIVE_STAGE+=test is easy to add, please do so.
Do we want to exclude the package from the bulk build, or just skip
the ``make test''?  (I think the latter.)

  Yes, a TEST_DEPENDS is needed for proper support of the test target.
How much work would it be to add support for this?  (Install the
packages listed in TEST_DEPENDS before running test proper, possibly
in a new phase test-depends?)
