I was building NSS with tests enabled on both i686 and x86_64 and I do
not release packages if they fail tests on my building machine.
However, I agree that the test suite of NSS is fragile and unsafe.

I made the default not to run tests on the libnss build, but will work
on fixing the test to bind to the loopback interface only.
