I'm releaser of pptp and pptpd, and if I referred to Wiki pages for
build instructions, dependencies or test results external to my source
repository or tarball, I'm sure I'd get a few raised eyebrows or

Is there a reason why you don't want to have these dependencies or known
test results in the source?  If they are not available at the time of
release, that's a good reason.  In which case saying that in INSTALL is
also a good idea.
