No, it's normal for the tests requiring the C libraries to fail until
those C libraries have been compiled. Go ahead with 'setup.py
install' then run tests again, and it should be clean.

There's a good reason for this pre-install test but it wasn't
explained properly in the install file, which we will improve on the
next release.
