Follow-up Comment #4, bug #59658 (project gettext):

> Is this time requirement acceptable?
A time requirement of 1 or 2 seconds is acceptable. A time requirement of 61
seconds is not; this is excessive.

The gnulib test 'test-lock' often takes a long time. But this is because on
platforms with buggy locks, within just 5 or 10 seconds, it would not crash.
It really needs a minute or so to distinguish good and buggy implementations
of locks. And locks are a fundamental element of the code; SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH
is not.
