In the FHS the /var/account directory is stated as being optional;
required if process accounting is supported.

One thing to note when interpreting the test suite results
(specification aside) is that a test reporting unsupported, is not
counted as a failure. For the example above of /var/account this test
was counted as equivalent to a pass, as during the configuration of
the test suite it was entered that process accounting was not
supported by the implementation.

When reading the report, the following are accumulated as failures:
  - Fail
  - Unititated
  - Unresolved
  - Unreported 

Anything else is counted as a pass.
