Dear Autoconf folks,

When doing an out of source build of Unbound, the test suite fails with the error below.

test signature verify functions
testpkts error: could not open file testdata/test_signatures.1: No such file or directory
Makefile:304: recipe for target 'test' failed
make: *** [test] Error 1

In the source directory there is a directory `testdata`, and that gets referenced incorrectly in `testcode/unitverify.c`.

        unit_show_feature("signature verify");
#ifdef USE_SHA1
        verifytest_file("testdata/test_signatures.1", "20070818005004");
#if defined(USE_DSA) && defined(USE_SHA1)
        verifytest_file("testdata/test_signatures.2", "20080414005004");
        verifytest_file("testdata/test_signatures.3", "20080416005004");

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any documentation how to deal with test data when building out of the source tree. Should the test data be copied to the build directory, despite it being not changed, should it be linked, or does the code need to reference only absolute paths, and therefore has to be preprocessed(?)?

Kind regards,
