I am doing what you suggest: tap is in external/tap-1.01.

You can tell ./configure to run ./configure in this directory.  
However, I can't hook this generally because it would also install tap  
on a system, when we only want it for testing purposes.

Anyway, I think it works correctly now. If I take a locally created  
distribution on a host without libtap, and run ./configure --enable- 
libtap, it will run the tests correctly.

Let me know if I've missed anything. In a few days, I'll switch the  
tinderbox builds to include --enable-libtap so that we get more  
coverage from the tap tests.
