FD passing should work on Android because that is a kernel property.
I took the easy way to implement the test by using system() which
requires a shell.  This can be fixed.

Good point.  Given that with Windows, VMS, and Android we have a couple
of non-Unix targets, we may want to rework the test suite.  After all
the current automake problems may demand a new test driver anyway.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
