Currently, the utils/ make check tests fail when run under
python2.7.  For reasons that aren't entirely clear, the action to set
apparmor.aa.cfg['settings']['ldd'] to './fake_ldd' does not actually
work on python2.7, so get_reqs() tries to use /usr/bin/ldd anyway
(printing out the contents of apparmor.aa.cfg['settings']['ldd']
after the set operation in _run_test() shows it to still contain
'/usr/bin/ldd' o.O). Therefore, skip these two tests when running
under python2.7.
