These tests require internet acess (in order to wget files from the
web), and thus should not be enabled by default. make run-test gets done
by make check, which should not depend on the environment to that

We could fix this by adding the archives into svn. Eno has suggested
that we make a new module for this, due to size considerations (as these
files would have to be in the tarball)

(OTOH, the "no regression" policy is a very good one, and should be
implemented independant of if the tests above are part of make run-test)
