I think that doing that means I still need to duplicate the  actual
build rules, which is what I was hoping to avoid, as they encode all the
magic "path replacement" logic in multiple places.

On the other hand, I can fix *that*, if I break the ability to run in
the build directory, which is bad in its own way.  (Fixing the tests
should be a matter of adapting the test library slightly, I think.)

For the time being, I'm going with ugly, but less disruptive, and I'm
willing/planning on revisiting it when things shake out a bit more.
