Could you provide an investigation of the failure? If you run the test
with the -v option it should provide more debugging information.
At this commit you can find a modification which will pinpoint which
of the tests run failed:

I don't plan to, but if you have a patch, I'd be happy to apply to.
However, as these scripts are only used for checking gnutls, I think
requiring bash for the testing phase is not much unreasonable. Is the
test failure reason the fact that bash is not available?
