Sorry, I had the incantation for multiple tests wrong.
Separate test configurations need to be in separate /* */ comment blocks.
BTW, it creates separate .jtr files for each block.

As for the build configuration being out of scope...
I don't want to see part of the work done and then the rest forgotten or
worse yet someone comes along in the future and incorrectly believes that
posix_spawn is ready for production and starts filing bugs or getting
bit by something.
There's a lot more testing to do before it could be come the default
and perhaps a significant warning should be attached to the code so it
does not get forgotten.
