Hi, I have fixed this on RHEL by chmod o+x $HOME before build.
I think it should autodetect nobody's access at least to current $HOME.
Not sure what would be the best fix. named-checkconf is missing user
switch. That check should be skipped if not configured properly. I am
unsure which bind utility can detect just missing rights to read file
under specified user.
It was also hit by Red Hat.

It seems okay to test it. It just should be able to skip the test if
chosen user cannot reach test directory. This test also fails on 9.11.19
