Then you might not have installed documentation ? .bs files should be
optional, too. What are you using ? some RedHat ?

perlivp checks that all files are installed. It's usefulness is a bit limited.

Concerning running the test suite against an installed perl, I
remember that Ilya Z had a look at this some time ago. Due to lack of
tuits, that wasn't actually implemented.
