While running tests on Windows (on which I have to disable 50% of them
to see what may actually break when doing a change) I noticed the
tests have a "skip" feature. Although I never quite understood how it
works. I think this should fall under this category when on macOS this
test should be skipped. And it's mentioned in the "make check" logs.
I also think it should depend on the OS X version. The current one
doesn't support it but when the test is run on the next version an
error might occur and we can verify the status of the feature or it's
supported and no further action needs to be done.
