[Bioperl-l] Set::Scalar missing causing a test failure for Bio::Tree::Compatible

Hi all,

When running make test on a fairly new system, I got the following

t/Compatible.................No Set::Scalar. Unable to test Bio::Tree::Compatible
Can't locate Set/Scalar.pm in @INC
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /home/cain/cvs_stuff/bioperl-live/blib/lib/Bio/Tree/Compatible.pm line 138.
Compilation failed in require at t/Compatible.t line 42.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at t/Compatible.t line 42.
        Test returned status 2 (wstat 512, 0x200)
        after all the subtests completed successfully

Set::Scalar is mentioned in Makefile.PL as an optional package (but not
required) and isn't mentioned in the INSTALL doc anywhere.  It looks
like the author of the test (t/Compatible.t) is trying to skip this test
if Set::Scalar isn't found, but the 'dubious' result gets marked
ultimately as a failure.

What is the right thing to do here?
