Thanks for reporting. We can at least detect this and skip the the tests
with a message (pushed).

I would agree it will — eventually — skip on "all" systems but, for now:

 a) It won't /fail/ outside of the Debian unstable right now.

 b) It's better than no tests for this module (!)

 c) Keeping track on the code coverage will mean we will be prompted to
    find another solution in the future.
