This won't work because in the build dir, srcdir is set to ".." in the Makefile located in the buildir, and the tests are run into a subdir : /build/test_python_xxx, so you can't rely on a relative path.
For this to work we would need an absolute path for "srcdir" in the Makefile.
We need to find a way to locate the srcdir with an aboslute path.
