The FITS test program t/fits.t fails unless the
supposedly optional Astro::FITS::Header is installed.
One fix would be to add that to the list of required
modules and mod the main Makefile.PL to pull it in.
To keep required dependencies to a minimum, I fixed
t/fits.t to skip the failing tests. That results in
successful test results without a spurious failure.
I did not investigate the 79 skipped tests to determine
whether they could still be run. Since the tests will
run if you have Astro::FITS::Header installed, the worst
case is less test coverage than theoretically possible
when Astro::FITS::Header is not installed.
