Incorrect, as far as Fink goes. We generate binary packages for
installation, and we don't provide for resumption of the package build
One could in principle install the package by hand from the build
directory, or try to perform the steps that Fink does manually, but it's
probably easier just not to force the testsuite.

Builds are on Mac OS X, by the way.
As far as I can tell, the only occurrence of posixtm in Fink is in the
coreutils tarball, and we don't patch lib/posixtm.h or lib/posixtm.c in
the build process, so I don't see how it could be our implementation.
The failure occurs for me when building on OS 10.6.4 (Intel), 64-bit
(I'm not sure what Toni has). The test passes on 10.5/32-bit and
10.6/32-bit for me with the same package description--32 bit and 64 bit
use identical procedures.
