dlopen() accepts either an absolute pathname or the basename
of a shared library. In the latter case, the library is searched
in the standard library search path, and in dirs in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

If we specified an absolute path we'd have to compile the abspath
of the working copy containing the shared libs into the binaries
to run tests. And re-compile with a different abspath during 'make install'.
It would also prevent moving an existing SVN installation to a different
prefix without recompilation. This could cause problems for packagers.
