me neither, but i guess shipping the thing produced by CppunitTest
currently doesn't work because the RPATH is wrong, and furthermore i
don't really get the point of shipping cppunittests anyway.

well i don't think complicating the gbuild core for this rather bizarre
special case is a good idea; if anything i'd first investigate whether
just changing the RPATH for Cppunittests and shipping the
Cppunit_smoketest instead of the ordinary Library_smoketest fixes things
up so everybody is happy?
