Not everyone have "standard perl installation" nowadays. Most Linux
users, for example, use Perl package from the distrubution, and
distributions love to strip down standard perl installation putting its
parts into separate packages, some of which might be optional.

For example, in Centos 6 it is part of perl-Test-Simple package. which
might be not included into docker images or simular minimal systems for
container-based deployment.

So, it worth few lines of the to remind user that "Your
perl installation is not standard enough".
