lib/kadm5/unit-test/ modifies the source tree to
create magic symlinks from capi.2 to api.2, etc.

This is bad as developers who are using a read-only source tree
will lose. (i.e. rel-eng)

I believe with a little dircetory rearrangment, symlinks in the
build tree to the source tree will work just fine. It gets a little
tricky with the config subdir... Maybe moving config to configin and
then symlink $build/config -> $src/configin will handle the case of
building in the source tree...

I solved this problem by ditching the sapi/capi symlinks entirely.
The unit tests now all run as --tool api, and the log files are
renamed to capi.* and sapi.* after runtest is complete.
