I don't like that idea, for the same reason I don't like the idea of
./run.in setting XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=builder/test-website, and that is
that it prevents you from doing:

  ./run virt-v2v -i disk windows.img ...


  ./run virt-builder fedora-22

Which was actually the reason I've been meaning to propose removing
the setting of XDG_CONFIG_DIRS from run.in (moving it instead to the
tests that need it).
