Fail: 'Unknown database 'xyz_test'' or 'FATAL database 'xyx_test' does not exist'

The first message usually means that rake db:* tasks have set up the _development database and not the _test one which is required by the tests. Try adding RAILS_ENV=test to your build commands.

In the second case, make sure you have bundle exec rake db:setup and bundle exec rake db:test:prepare in your build commands, as the test database is not created before the build begins.
