I'm unsure about that: the testrunner.rb uses the source directory
as library path for loading the test files. Of course, this will work
for pure ruby libraries, but, at least for setup.rb, it will fail
miserably for built extensions, since the build cleans up the built
files in the source after installing. I'm wondering: shouldn't
testrunner.rb rather use debian/package/usr/lib/vendor_ruby and co as
library path ? This is guaranteed to work, at least if tests are run
*after* installation (which is the case) ?
I'm on my way to write unit tests for DhRubySetupRb, I'll post the
full patchset, and I'll wait for your comments before pushing to
