From: David Bremner

The goal of the series is to support CI tests like Debian's
autopkgtest that test packages as installed (as opposed to in the
build tree).  Most of the test suite works OK in the setting, although
some things need built binaries.

One important exception is the python bindings, which are not run yet,
and probably should be.

This series needs to be applied on top of [1], at least if you want
all the test to pass in installed mode.

Another issue I'm not completely happy about is that "default.sh"
fakes running configure (since we don't have the dependencies to run
configure).  I am not sure the best approach here. One thing we could
do is split the configure script into a subscript in test/configure
just for tests. There would probably be some duplication with the main
configure script.
