I don't like the idea of adding $(EXEEXT) to those variables.  And it
breaks XFAIL_TESTS for example.  I'm not sure what exactly is the
problem you are facing.  This this for example help:


Something along those lines is easier to get in.

I'm going to finally add that driver program called cairo-test so the
way we run tests will be changed and hopefully problems like this won't
occur.   I've got to see how bad linking 100s of .o files into
cairo-test takes...
