Yes, this is testing as root, largely because automatic deployment makes it
hard to do the checkout/make/make test as an unprivileged user. I appreciate
that in most other scenarios the final step would be "sudo make install" but
when things are installed via configuration management, the process usually
runs as root already and su-ing to a user for "make test" is adding more
complication to the process.

Ah. Just catch this with check if if id=0 and skipping the test as "known not
to work for this use-case."
