I don't think it is, unless I'm misunderstanding something. The
testsuite expects the daemon to die within a few seconds of sending it
the quit command (which it does several times over the course of a
number of the tests), so having it reaped at the end of the build
process won't help.

I tried the latter a couple of weeks ago and it didn't work either,
though it's highly likely that I did something wrong in my Scheme code.
I also didn't use the 1-second timer hack so perhaps that was it.

I just tested this (adapted from the mutter package) and it worked:

I agree, possibly with the 1-second timer hack as well.
