Re: zpty-related testsuite failures if building in a chroot on a host running systemd 220 as init system

Not at configure time -- that would result in the module being left
uncompiled, when in fact outside of the chroot it would work.

} we've done such things before.  But surely if it's possible for the

} we shouldn't need to test...?

I think the test failing here was exactly the right thing, as it led to
the origin of the problem being discovered.  The only viable alternative
would be to report the test as "skipped" which I guess would be OK for
the secondary tests that rely on zpty, but not for V08zpty itself.

I suppose the test suite could remember that V08 failed and therefore
skip X02 and all of Y, so as to isolate the problem better.  We could
add some sort of dependency check.
