The former seems better to me, as it is more precise.  Question is
whether it is possible to always get the path right: it might just
be the case that the package builds the testsuite at configure or
make time only, and file names might be absolute or relative to
the build or source tree.  I must confess of not having looked into
the issue at all however.

Thanks for the report,
