I don't see why not, go for it.

However the page does recommend 

"./autogen.sh ... --without-junit ..."

which would avoid the need for junit4, but I'm not exactly sure why that
line is the recommended one. Perhaps because junit isn't universally
packaged across all distributions ? Or maybe some other reason.
