Without tossing libtool, I don't think so.

The only way the regular tests work is that they call out to our svn*
executables which happen to be libtool shell scripts that tweak the
environment and binaries (!) that trick the system into thinking it's loading
from the installed directory. (Take a look and you'll see what I mean.) And
note that the in-place testing we do now doesn't necessarily work on all OSes
either. libtool doesn't know how to trick Mac OS X into ignoring the
installed libraries - so test cases always fail for me until I install.

Python, Java, and Perl are going to require an even greater level of trickery.
I'll note that httpd's test suite is a standalone suite that requires
installation. I just think we're going to end up with the same solution (by
and large) for our bindings. -- justin
