So that when binaries such as qemu-img are searched for, those in the
build tree will be favored.  As a clarification, SRC_ROOT_DIR is
dependent on the location from where tests are executed, so they are
equal to the build directory if one is being used.

The original motivation is that Avocado libraries such as
avocado.utils.vmimage.get() may use the matching binaries, but it may
also apply to any other binary that test code may eventually attempt
to execute.
