 Seeing the test suite results in the build logs on various
 architectures, but not failing as soon as you do this.

 I currently see that testsuites of gtk+2.0 and pango1.0 fail even on
 i386, so I'm still adding a test suite run to the build, but ignoring
 the result for now.  I expect plenty of test suites of CDBS packages in
 pkg-gnome will fail when activated, so I'd like to have a switch to
 enable the test suite, but not fail when I enable it on all pkg-gnome
 packages. :)

 I think it's often desirable to run the test suite but discard the exit
