The selftest takes 0.76 CPU seconds on my vintage 300 MHz K6-2 machine,
you can't even download the source in that time unless you're in the
same LAN as a SourceForge mirror, let alone configure and build the
package which takes 107 CPU seconds. So we're talking about a few bytes
and 0.7% increase of build time. I think this is negligible.

Since the upstream maintainer isn't using FreeBSD for development and
I've had to patch away several regressions in e2fsprogs where this
package was split from, I'd sleep better at night if we could run the
selftest everywhere, particularly given the very low cost.
