The readme states that you can generally ignore messages about skipped tests, but as you can see below, some of the tests failed and a number were 'unexpected skips', so I'm not sure if I can go ahead with the install or need to perform further troubleshooting.

I'm guessing you need to install development versions of the various
libraries on which these modules depend.  If they aren't detected
during  configure, they probably won't be built.
