Found it - statstest is guarded by the automake conditional
ENABLE_XEN_TESTS, set at configure time according to whether xen sockets
were usable.

But to avoid this type of failure in the future, I'd rather have the
test unconditionally compiled if xen headers are present, and merely
have the test have an early opt-opt return 77 (for skip) if the xen
socket cannot be connected to at runtime.
