This kind of thing (not making tests depend on completely unrelated
functionality) is the most important since it also relates to
correctness (we don't want bugs in functionality X to impact the
results of tests for functionality Y).

I hadn't thought too much about that. Ideally musl would have just had
strfmon (or at least a stub for it) since a long time ago, but I never
ran into anything that needed it.

I'm not sure what the best thing for cluts to do at this stage is. In
the long term, I'd like to have either a configure script or something
in the build system whereby tests that can't build are automatically
excluded (without excluding other related tests that could build) but
for now it might be the best to have a simple #ifdef so this test
could be disabled from the makefile settings.
