A user reported a problem building PDL on their system
with two test failures. The issue was that the two PDL
modules related to the tests had not been built since
the needed gd and GSL libraries were not installed.
The test still tried to run because the system apparently
had another version of PDL installed in the main perl5
library location. This was detected when the use check
was performed at the start of the test.
Ideally, we could use the PDL::Config information to
have tests skipped that have not been configured or
build. Another possibility would be to detect the
out-of-blib-tree location in the test runs
