I've gone with Alfie's suggestion, and hand installed it, ignoring the 
failing tests. I only want to use this for one of task, and I've only 
installed it in my home directory, so if the module does fail 
spectacularly, I won't be fussed.

I did run the make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 though. It wrote over 3000 lines 
of output, so I won't append it here.
