I meant testing with glibc :). Because your patch would bring a regression:
ifndef HAVE_FTS_H is always true because HAVE_FTS_H as an autotools check is not
visible to make in this form, no matter what it's set to HAVE_FTS_H in
include/config.h :(.

We could solve previous problem to make HAVE_FTS_H visible with AC_SUBST, while
creating proper autotools function check in m4/. Planning to do that? (if not
I'll do).
My thoughts about dependency problem in shell scripts (TST_TEST_TCONF) was wrong
as these tests are also under cpuset directory.
