Hi,

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that pelican could not be built reproducibly.

The attached patch removes randomness from the build system by not
shipping the test suite - they aren't run anyway (although we could
still run them even with this change), they are kind auseless in the
shipped .deb (and they fail anyway), saves ~2MiB in the final .deb
and—from the reproducible point of view—they vary by locale.

Once applied, pelican can be built reproducibly in our reproducible
toolchain.
