Yes, that is cleaner. I export abs_srcdir from the Makefile now and use
that instead of (relative) paths from srcdir.

Yes, the multiple ../ prefixes might not be as easy to read/understand
immediately. Since we are using abs_srcdir above already I paired it
with abs_builddir and reference all input files in the run-test*sh
scripts. So everything in the tests should now be referenced either from
the current test directory, using abs_srcdir or abs_builddir.
