The test/Makefiles do not share the Defs-*.gmk files that the build makefile do.
They are pretty independent and could easily have this wrong.

Granted the makefiles, product, properties, bundle names, and directory names all suffer from a little ARCH craziness. :^(

However, if I go into the test directory and run "make" there, it's trying to test against build/macosx-i586. Then I find out it's because on my system "uname -m" returns i386.
