i think later versions of php5 (5.2.2) have a test guarding for this,
but that wasn't part of the patch i backported.  about running tests
during build in general, yes i think it's a good idea to have the tests
run as part of the build procedure.  in fact this was discussed as
recently as a week or two ago... the only reason it hasn't been done is
a lack of time--most my php time gets spent on security issues lately,
it seems :(
