Terrible! This invalidates the entire dependency tree based on serf. In
effect, it enforces an expiration date on these packages.

Rather than using this workaround, which will stop working 2018-09-19,
we should disable this test. We should also file an upstream bug asking
them to fudge the date in their tests, so that we can run this test
suite forever. GnuTLS uses this technique with the 'datefudge' tool.
