[Buildbot-devel] Setting the PATH for a test run

On the first point, that is what I ended up doing, not ideal, perhaps
there should be a way to get hold of this common information from
somewhere in a future BuildBot update?

The second point, I realised already that I could update the PATH in
the 'env' parameter to the Step, that isn't the main problem, perhaps
I didn't explain properly. The problem is, how do I get the fully
qualified path to the generated executable. That is, I know it's in
'build/aqsis/output/bin' but how do I know where 'build' is? I need
something like '/home/buildslave/regression/build/aqsis/output/bin',
but how can I find out the extra information needed?
