As Jeff wrote: the test suite needs a compiler, because it builds 
additional modules that come with the test suite first.

You might be able to start tests and let the modules build and then 
later move everything to a non-dev box and rerun the tests there (which 
will not try to build those modules again). Never tried it, but you 
should at least move it to the same directory on the other box.

The test suite checks functionality and bug regressions. It doesn't test 
performance. For performance tests you will need specialized tools and 
the results will depend a lot on the type of environment used, the 
configuration and the use cases being simulated.
