Is it possible to just go ahead with that for now or not?
Would it be a problem if make check failed, even if they are all known failures?
I am afraid I don't know much about make check / make distcheck / etc,
so I am asking.

I think it would be neat to be able to write a very simple bisect
script checking for a specific pactest failure, that is, being able to
just put pactest/pactest.py -p src/pacman/pacman -t /path/to/pactest
in the bisect script, and it would simply work.
