Perhaps "make test" should check for memcached server before starting?

Bug Description

When running "make test" without a memcached server installed, many tests fail, but these look like generic failures. They don't represent failures of libmemcached (the client), but rather the test environment. Perhaps "make test" should do some basic sanity checking of the test environment? At the very least, testing that memcached can be started up, say by writing a single key-value pair to it an retrieving it using telnet?

Alternately, it would be fair to declare the problem to be PEBKAC. :)
