Well, now you can decide at your leisure about where you want them.

Attached patch modifies to "find" the binary and replace
the correct path in the rules array. If a required external binary
can't be found, the test program will now abort with an error, except
in the case of "tree", where an ls -laR will be performed instead.

The patch needs a proper LFS header applied and sending upstream
(hint, hint, nudge, nudge). Tested here on udev-067 without issue.
