As I said, I have not yet checked why it ends up where it does (it may
be some time before I get to the bottom of this).  It may still have to
do with the environment — I start NTemacs from Cygwin to be able to use
Cygwin's make and this combination is somewhat fragile.  Thanks for
confirming that it isn't a setting that the test framework alters.

I'll have to think about the ramifications of doing this, but it is
certainly possible.  In fact, I might want to do that anyway to have
texi2pdf put the auxiliary files into a place within the build
directory, but not under doc.
