[tlbuild] Some weird problems in test cases

with a special user that otherwise has no shell
I expect that is the problem. I can't think of any viable solution. If
you can't get a normal user, just have to ignore these failures or not
bother to run the tests (or if you feel like spending time trying to
figure out a feasible change, so much the better).
perl: no user 500
These are the few tests I wrote in Perl. They all use
source/texk/tests/common-test.pl. All that does is fork a subprocess
(calls system(...)) and read/writes a file. I suspect the fork fails.
Probably something like getpwuid(500) is failing.
I suppose those tests could be rewritten in sh, but that's not something
I'm going to spend time on ... -k
