  Thinking about it more, I'm afraid it's not a testable behaviour.
Not only isn't there any way to force the race since it entirely
happens inside a libc function, but also, the test would require
running code on the build machine, which doesn't work for cross-builds
and people would have to manually set the sysdep anyway.

  It seems like --with-sysdep-posixspawn=no, as you did, is the easiest
