Our test suite already uses a separate configuration which is
auto-generated in test/setup.sh, so it is already self-contained in that
sense; we only need to update aur_location there.

Great! I would probably prefer having a simple way of telling the test
suite to run with or without these tests, though. We should not let the
test suite pass if we intended to run all tests but forgot to install
some dependency. Maybe we can use an environment variable for that?
