It would probably be best if a suitable directory would be passed into
the test(s) from the outside, e.g. through an environment variable set
either by Boost.Build or by the test runner.

BTW, the same scheme would also solve the problem of the serialization
tests that leave a long list of files in /tmp every time they run.

That probably only applies to Boost.Filesystem, not to other libraries.

It isn't necessary when the temporary files get created elsewhere.
