A certificate used in the GnuTLS test suite has expired, causing the
test suite to fail.
The effect of this patch depends on whether or not the datefudge program
is available. If it is, then it is used to change the date in the test
environment. If it is not, then the test is skipped.
At the time this patch was added to Guix, datefudge was not available,
so the test is skipped.
