Hi kodis,

In your top-level, simply change the ordering of the
directories in SUBDIRS to have the top-level directory build first.

I suspect that it currently looks something like this:

    SUBDIRS = tests .

    SUBDIRS = tests

(the first is simply a more explicit version of the second). You would
want to change it so that '.' comes before 'tests':

    SUBDIRS = . tests
