It occurred to me this morning that for the test directories we don't actually need the out-of-
tree softlinks. The tests only access guile modules, so if we set these up by linking directly 
to the original module files in the source directory, the intermediate links are superfluous.

So I have committed one more simplification for this.

Let me know if you get errors with this.
