I wanted to run make check to see if the build was successful and i was happy 
to see that there are a lot of tests.
I am not sure if i can expect to get an exit code 0 after that or if i just 
have to check the results if the failed tests really matter to me.
But i was curious since it was only the one test which i would have expected to 
be skipped in the first place.

Please let me know if you need any further information.
I am happy if i can help.
