the test requires:
 - it be statically linked
   -> use tests-static in the makefile
 - the db accessed contains the data we request
   -> nptl/tst-setuid1.c seems to already assume "nobody" is a valid acct
 - it have access to the nss libs to load
   -> set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the local paths using the xxx-env hooks if
      existing run logic doesn't already do it

what other external deps did you have in mind ?

i just tested it over here and it semed fine:
$ gcc test.c -B. -static
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PWD/nis:$PWD/nss:$PWD:$PWD/elf strace -e file ./a.out
<all libs are loaded from $PWD>
/etc/nsswitch.conf & /etc/passwd are read, but i think our tests already
rely on that ...
