The purpose of the test seems to be to check that finding and loading works for widely-available libraries. However I suspect find_library("c") can fail on other platforms as well. Presumably that is why there is the special case for Cygwin at the top of the file.

Open SSL is also widely available, but not universal. I think it is even possible to build Python without SSL support, and the tests should not fail in this case.

Perhaps it would be okay to remove "m" and just run the test on find_library("c"). If so, we can adjust the test to call self.skipTest("C library not found"), which will warn that the test could not be run.
