I originally planned for it to be strictly for tests, and it seems to have morphed into a tests and test infrastructure mtree file. This is mostly ok, except for the fact that now if I specify TESTSBASE != /usr/tests, things will fail in the build.

Is TESTSBASE supposed to be customizable?  (And before answering that:
are things like LIBDIR or INCLUDEDIR user-tunabale?)
