That reminds me that there is some problem with running the tests
under Wine. That will have to be fixed of course, but Wine still
only runs 32 bit windows binaries.

What I did for libsndfile was generate a binary test suite tarball
that could be untarred on the target system where the tests needed
to be run. I'll probably do something like that.
