Hm.  Wouldn't it be enough to just spread the use of
TestLib::check_pg_config and use SKIP on the tests where things cannot
be run then?  I see no need to invent an extra facility if all the
control is already in pg_config.h.  For slapd, you can actually just
check if it can be executed in the PATH defined at the top of
001_auth.pl in $slapd, and skip the tests if the thing cannot be run.
We have enough flexibility in perl and TAP to allow that to work
