This force packaging Test::Number::Delta ...

Well, unless installing the package necessarily means running the
test suite, no, you don't need to make your Cairo package depend on
a Test::Number::Delta package.  Test::Number::Delta is only needed
to run the test suite.  It's not needed at run-time.


$ perl Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
MakeMaker FATAL: prerequisites not found (Test::Number::Delta not installed)

               Please install these modules first and rerun 'perl Makefile.PL'. 

I looked into getting rid of the dependency on it, but the amount of
functionality I use in Cairo is substantial enough that I don't just
want to copy the relevant functions.  There'd be no point to CPAN if
everybody did that.
