You probably need, for user "foo" running the tests, to have the tests
checked out and run somewhere under "foo"'s home directory. Since the
testing also needs to be mounted in an area which needs setuid, you may
need the home directory to be somewhere not in the usual place. I have
/usr/globnix/homes/exim-build/ for this, so that /home can remain

When I first ran the tests, I found a whole bunch of undocumented
assumptions and updated test/README with anything I found. I encourage
folks to continue along this path.
