They're not absolutely necessary; the tests are skipped w/o failure because
bioperl-ext is optional.  These are only necessary if you want the ability
to read sequence trace files.  

BTW, you might have a rough time on trying to install bioperl-ext depending
on your platform.  Note the following bug report:
