Actually, I was wrong regarding weston tests (: I checked it now.
It is expected that weston tests uses test specific ini files. You can check it here tests/weston-tests-env.
Therefore, we are basically free to use install paths instead of build/src paths. Then, generated ivi-shell/weston.ini would work as it is.
I already implemented a patch to do that. I will send it now to mailing list.
