Interestingly enough, the test cases that fail to build have already been
identified to be problematic. Unfortunately the decision to build them or not
was/is made on the host type...

I added code to the config files to make sure these tests are definitely
disabled when ntp_cv_gc_sections_runs=no.

Providing just dummy/stub/mock symbols to the linker might or might not lead to
crashes later on -- it seems better to disable the 3 tests for now.
