Its a possibility. I've gotten most of the weird bits fixed with
utils/run and some other places for this to actually work. I got all
the way to noticing that etap's were using a path like
"test/etap/file.tmp" as a temporary file to write to. I didn't feel
like fixing that at the time so I punted.

Also, I would just like to mention that its worked fine so far. ;) And
to the one guy in the shack on an island using a weird VPATH build
that wants to run the unit tests: Patches welcome.
