This is an umbrella issue to track a bunch of bugs in testing related to
availability of packages.  Please add a comment about resolution here
when those bugs are done.  Also add new related bugs to the list.

issue876 Mule *-utils.el and mule-base package need refactoring

issue878 keymap-tests crashes due to non-command symbols

Add two files, beta.err (a complete build log in a fresh checkout) and
check-with-pkgs.err (just make check with EMACSPACKAGEPATH pointing to a
package installation).

Note that some tests do check for availability of needed packages and
skip the test if unavailable.  This may be unavoidable, but it's
undesirable.  Tests that can be done only with the core functionality
being tested should be written.

Several tests require packages to be performed.  This should be avoided
as packages may not be available at test time (eg, a fresh install).
