You might be thinking `test.src` which is the path to the test source.
These properties are always easy to get mixed up but there is a good
table in the jtreg tag language spec . In any case, I don't think
jtreg sets test.dir (at least I can't see it) but it's useful to set on
the command-line when running the tests outside of the test harness, I
think that is what Brian is doing here.
