      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?

I should add that if you abuse BUILD_DEPENDS and USE_TOOLS :build for
this instead of implementing TEST_DEPENDS and USE_TOOLS :test, you
will likely break cross-compilation for many packages.
