In Lib/test/, testGetServBy calls socket.getservbyname(), which needs /etc/services (see "man getservbyname"). If this file is not found, the test fails instead of being skipped.

The attached patch was written against the latest revision of the Mercurial repository. It might be worth applying it for every currently supported version of Python.
