Re: 'make check', those that require X, the others

My buildslave finished its run of modules <>
and several are marked as failed because their 'make check' phase failed.

There are roughly three categories there:

 1. real check failures, to be investigated;
 2. missing files in po/, I'll check with i18n and report
    them if necessary;
 3. failures because checks require to be run in an X server.

What to do about that last category?  Should it be reported against
modules so they do not try to run them if DISPLAY= is not set?
Something else?

We could also run Xvfb. In my pet project I check for Xvfb in configure and start Xvfb in the tests - it works quite well. I think gtk can start Xvfb from the makefile too.


Also, is this possible to identify modules failing 'make check' on the
