Ah, that helped, thanks. I was able to get them working in test/sys/.

Thanks, but that's about as clear as mud. Is the "magic" the KYUAFILE=yes line? When is this required and when isn't it? Where is the documentation on its usage?

Is there a document that gives examples on how to correctly set up Makefiles for various directory layouts? I just spent several hours to get tests placed into src/sbin/geom/class/part/tests pulled into the build and have failed miserably. There is a decent amount of documentation on how to write ATF tests themselves, but I've found no resource on how to correctly add/update Makefiles to make them work. I don't think this is rocket science but it sure feels like it at this point.
