Have you applied additional patches to the distributed tarball or used
configure options to disable certain features? If not could you run the
test that fails manually using the -v switch?

Could it be that you have disabled TLS 1.2? These two ciphersuites are
(mistakenly) enabled only in TLS 1.2. I noticed that few hours after the
release and was fixed in the 8648c2da75e0db5f586627c70f2889a083462619
