With your patch, I still get "checking whether the utimes function works... yes"
and the same failures:
test-futimens.h:108: assertion failed
FAIL: test-futimens
test-utimens.h:101: assertion failed
FAIL: test-utimens

The time skew on my machine is below 1 second:
$ date +"%Y-%m-%d %T.%N"; touch foo; ls -l --full-time foo; date +"%Y-%m-%d
