In general I'm a bit reluctant to skip tests, but if it's the
upstream recommendation to skip those tests during automated building
that seems like a good reason.

Thanks for your help!

What do other people from the Debian Perl Group think?

I would say, let's follow upstream's reccomendation and thus skip for
now these tests. If we have some other possibility then to access a
mips machine directly we may try to further find more informations
about that.
