I had my doubts about it at the time John suggested one could run from the 
build directory, but didn't have time then to question/test further under what 
restrictions it would work.

But for sure my commits won't copy the images into the build directory where 
they are searched. I'll see how to fix this.

I must admit on my system 'ninja-build install' is hardly overhead. It takes 
litterally 2 seconds on my ssd, so running from the build directory was not 
something I considered important until now. I realize now not everybody has 
the luxury of such performance.
