I will move testHeaders stuff to headertests.am or TestHeaders.am, but
let me provide this as a to-do list for the discussion:

    * lib/ -- Not analyzed as I am focusing on src/ for now. The
      solutions we develop for src/ may be propagated one level up if
      needed and possible.
    * src/fs -- The makefile itself is wrong. We should have fs-specific
      makefiles in src/fs/*/. Once that is done, there will be no need
      for special testHeaders code.
    * src/auth -- Same problem as src/fs
    * src/DiskIO -- Similar problem, but worse. There is not even a
      Makefile for src/DiskIO itself as all the build stuff resides in

Thank you,
