You should try to dig a little deeper. The testsuite directory should 
contain a log file with tests' output.

I suspect you're running tests under w9x. It's a known problem that 
testsuite emits FAILs instead of XFAILs (or just skipping appropriate 
tests) when running ntsec-related tests, such as chown, chmod, etc. on 
platforms that don't support ntsec.
