The next person who closes testsuite failures as invalid or upstream
gets to meet my frozen boot.  If a test fails, fix it.  If it fails
because of portage or Gentoo-specific reasons that can't be fixed then

Everybody is crowing about making src_test enabled by default, yet I
still had 2 out of 3 build failures on my last tinderbox adventure
caused by known, reported, and unfixed testsuite problems.
