Those tests are supposed to skip sections if Module::Build isn't installed. I'll double check it.
If you still have it, could you please email your test output to dagolden (at) cpan (dot) org?
Update: the tests do skip, but the skip count was wrong as I'd added tests since creating the skip block. Fixed in 0.34, which is on its way to CPAN now. Thanks for finding that bug.
