Thanks Steve.  Since strace-S.test IS expected to test different
personalities properly, the proper fix is to trace a locally built
executable instead.

I also changed the test to measure wall clock time instead of system time
because of some subtle (Debian specific?) bug with -c option resulting to
first 3 columns of -c output containing zeroes only.  While that bug needs
a fix, it has nothing to do with -S option.
