Hm, actually, it looks like we are already accounting for that in the Makefile:

# NB, automake < 1.10 does not provide the real
# abs_top_{src/build}dir variables, so don't rely
# on them here. Fake them with 'pwd'
  abs_top_builddir=`cd '$(top_builddir)'; pwd`	\
  abs_top_srcdir=`cd '$(top_srcdir)'; pwd`	\
  abs_builddir=`cd '$(builddir)'; pwd`		\
  abs_srcdir=`cd '$(srcdir)'; pwd`		\

So I think we should actually be OK.  At least, make check seems to be happy
enough running the tests on a RHEL-5 machine.

As for using $srcdir, the problem with it is that test-lib.sh makes each test
run from a temporary subdirectory, so I'd have to do $srcdir/../../tools/virsh.
 While that would work, it's totally non-obvious to the casual reader why you
need the ../..  Also, it wouldn't work if you were using a separated source and
build directory.  My upcoming patch re-defines abs_top_builddir and
abs_top_srcdir the same way as the Makefile does if they are not defined.
