If you didn't know it already, it is sometimes better to enable a test
and just exempt the files that cannot pass the test, then it is to
globally disable the test.  To exempt a given file, list its name in the
file .x-sc_space_tab in the top-level source dir.  To be reproducible,
you'd then want to make that file EXTRA_DIST.  Coreutils has a few of
those .x-sc_* files, along with a clever extra rule in to ensure
that we don't forget to distribute any of them.
