I had set this as an included option for tinderbox builds (tools/ 
tinderbox_builds), but it caused breakages at the make stage. Partly  
due to not linking libraries correctly, but HP/UX was complaining  
about the libtap code.

So I've removed the --enable-libtap from tinderbox build.  
Unfortunately, I haven't had time to get the old behaviour restored,  
so now no libtap testing is run. Want to see if this stabilises the  
builds first.
