I'm pretty sure you haven't set up the local addresses the test servers
need to run on. From the top of the bind9 tree, run the command:
$ sudo sh bin/tests/system/ifconfig.sh up
...then run "make test" and you'll probably get better results.
The ifconfig.sh command sets up loopback addresses 10.53.0.1 through
10.53.0.7. The system tests run servers on those addresses and make
them talk to each other. Without addresses configured, about 90% of
the tests will fail.
