Bug#501688: dh-make-perl ignoring build_requires in Makefile.PL

Package: dh-make-perl
Version: 0.47
Severity: normal

dh-make-perl appears to either ignore, or doesn't recognise the
build_requires statement used in Module::Install type Makefile.PL

    build_requires  'Test::More'            => 0;
    build_requires  'Test::Exception'       => 0;
    build_requires  'Test::Memory::Cycle'   => 0;
    build_requires  'Test::Pod'             => 0;

Consequently the Build-Depends: tag in debian/control is not correct.
