Apparently "ctest" will invoke "gdb" for tests if available in PATH. The
stack trace was not very helpful to my untrained eye however..

Given that this software is abandoned upstream, I don't think it's worth
spending a lot of time on maintaining it (our Wayland is newer than the
latest Greenisland release). We'll eventually have to find another
Wayland compositor for SDDM, in the meantime I think it's okay to
disable this test. What do others think?

I've configured my system on 'core-updates' and can confirm that SDDM
works fine (after disabling greenisland tests).

Geronimo? :-)
