Hi Daiki.

In the long term, I think it would be nice to ensure each test runs in
its own subdirectory, not to have to worry about possible conflicts in
the names of temporary files (and the headache-causing racy failures
usually associated with that).  Packages like Automake and Coreutils
have been running each test in its own subdirectory for a long time,
and have lived very happily ever after.

In the meantime, though, I agree this is an acceptable band-aid.  My
proposed change would likely require and audit and partial rethinking
of the whole testsuite, and that could be very time-consuming.

I tried, but unfortunately encountered this build failure during
the ./autogen.sh run from a clean checkout:

Can you reproduce?  If not, let me know whether you need more details.
