You don't. I myself only do so to check that it does build (and to get
the tests run). I know that several other devs do the same.
Specifically, I never *install* BioPerl (because I want to be able to
switch versions easily).
I believe Build sets up a config file for Bio::DB::GFF, which is used
by GBrowse, but I may be mistaken on that. If I'm not you'd have to
either create that file by hand, or run Build but you still don't have
The only caveat if you don't install BioPerl is that you'll have to
include its location in the PERL5LIB environment variable for every
script that uses it (or add -I, or add 'use lib' to the script).
