The challenge appears to be to do with the packages that are installed
on the system.  For example, I have been unable to replicate this on my
Centos 5 system, despite this being listed as a 'failing' platform, and
clearly it passes autobuild and runs on various developer machines.

What we have not pinned down is what the missing package is, what
difference that makes in terms of config.h, and then to disable the
tests that cannot run without that support compiled in.  You will see
that attempts to skip certain tests if various config.h values
are not found, but this clearly isn't enough.

Perhaps you might be able to collect some config.h examples, and compare
against your system where this presumably passes?  That might help
create the right patches for
