I'm not sure doing this would make things much easier. It looks like the
testing code assumes that the build directories have the same structure as
the source directories. And it already copies the .exe's before running

The debugger isn't as much of a concern since it has to be invoked manually.
Testing and installation need to work automatically.

Thanks for doing this. I'll make a new patch with your changes. Can you post
the autoconverted apr projects too?
