RT includes a script rt-test-dependencies that can install them for you through
CPAN. It still may require some handholding if something fails to install
(looking at the CPAN output and finding the missing dependency that prevented a
module from installing).
Be it thy course to busy giddy minds
With foreign quarrels; that action, hence borne out,
May waste the memory of the former days.
