Hmmm...Sometimes (such as on platforms with very little local space, but
the oldest version of an operating system in a series) my "build tree"
is an NFS mounted home directory rather than local disk. I think it is
probably desirable to hack configure at the same time to specify the
filesystem to use for testing and possibly leave it as /tmp for now.

That's a good point. I hadn't thought about that yet. I will likely leave it to default to some variation of /tmp/cvs-sanity and perhaps add an admonition to try running the tests from the file system the CVS repository will reside on. Thanks.

Darn, but it was convenient to look in a subdir and find the results of only tests which broke. Maybe I'll have the new suite try and create a symlink to the tmp space or print out the path each time. Or something. I'll have to give that thought. :(
