Some tests require root, some do not. It depends on what you want to 
All tests that require root should announce this in their configuration, 
so running tests as a regular user should work, but you’ll end up with 
more skipped tests than if you run them as root.

I personally mostly care about network (and specifically pf) tests, so I 
tend to always run them as root. If you care about (e.g.) grep tests 
they should just work as a regular user.
