Digest::SHA is the most notable missing package at runtime
for a minimal system.

Tests don't run at all without Test::Simple (or Test::More).
Plack::Test is also a separate package, too...

Also, the package for IO::Compress::Gzip should be IO::Compress;
as perl-PerlIO-gzip is a different thing entirely which is not
relevant to our needs.

Test::HTTP::Server::Simple doesn't seem required at all for Plack

ExtUtils::MakeMaker needs to be documented as a install dependency
for people installing this, too; since AFAIK public-inbox is not
yet in any distros.

 standard MakeMaker installation (Perl)
+To use MakeMaker, you need to ensure ExtUtils::MakeMaker is available.
+This is typically installed with Perl, but RPM-based systems will likely
+need to install the `perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker' package.
 Once the dependencies are installed, you should be able to build and
 install the system (into /usr/local) with:
