Close.  Paths as spit out by the test suite are relative to the
top-level directory, but paths as passed to need to be
relative to the [.t] directory, so if the test name has a t/ in front
of it, you just remove that.

t/op/pack --> $ @[.vms]test .exe "" "-v" [.op]pack.t

and if it has something else in front of it, you need to go up a
directory and then back down:

lib/Math/Trig --> $ @[.vms]test .exe "" "-v" [-.lib.math]trig.t

and of course append the .t extension as you've figured out already.
Clearly this needs to be documented better.  It used to be slightly
less confusing before we switched to the current test harness.
