Sadly, I can't control that. The building & packaging process is mostly 
automated, witha rather strict directory architecture.I can't reduce 
enough the length of the path.
I've tinkered with the tests a little to use /tmp, got the agent to 
start, more tests pass, but still a lot of failures, and one of the 
checks hangs.
I will have to look more at them.
