Another problem with the libnbd tests is that they use the installed
nbdkit, but -- presumably for political rather than technical reasons --
nbdkit on FreeBSD is built without GnuTLS support.  While I could add
'requires' lines everywhere to test this, it may be better (on
FreeBSD) to either not test against nbdkit at all or to test against
the latest nbdkit build.  Could CI tests allow this?  Don't worry
about implementing this, I just want to know what's possible.

The situation for testing nbdkit is similar but reversed.  FreeBSD
does not package libnbd at all so far, but I'm quite sure they'll also
build a TLS-less version if they get around to it.

Someone requested a version of libnbd that supported OpenSSL as an
alternative crypto backend recently.  I wonder if they were a *BSD
developer?
