The db story is something of a mess right now.  Upgrade to Windows and you
can take advantage of my recent pain there (which hasn't all gone away:
still getting link warnings, don't know whether they matter or how to stop
them if they do, and can't make more time to stare at it).

test_normalization should probably be changed to a -u thing, and put in
regrtest's "expected skip" list on all platforms (it requires a giant text
file of test cases that isn't checked into the project).

test_bz2 was likely skipped because the new bz2 stuff isn't being built on
this box, and/or bunzip2 wasn't found on the PATH.

test_bsddb3 is already in already a regrtest -u thingie, so should be in the
expected-skip list on all boxes.
