If you're relying on CPAN testers for that you mostly won't get reports
when your code fails to build. Most testers only report when the tests
fail, and if your code won't even build the tests won't get run.  The
reason for that is that we can't really tell automatically if the build
failure is because of your broken code or our missing libraries that it
tried to link against.
