It was taken out because nearly every test was complaining: "warning:
ignoring bogus argument". It seems awfully silly to me that *every*
test we write, past and future, now have this obligation to expect (or
deliberately ignore) a srcdir on the commandline. It seems like an
extra, unnecessary maintenance hassle to me. :-(
