   Until we have TEST_DEPENDS or :test support in USE_TOOLS, yes, though
   it would be helpful to add it on a separate line with a comment to say
   it is only required for tests, so we can go around cleaning up later.

It shouldn't be too hard to teach pkgsrc about TEST_DEPENDS and :test,
I imagine!  Anyone want to give it a try?
