In "test_system.html", under "Test result" section.

Can you dive in "generators-test" directory and see if there's
"bin" directory there. If "a.o" existed before the test run,
then if would be reported as "not added". It would be better
to differentiate between "was present before" and "was not present before",
just I did not code that yet.

If that fails, try calling pprint method of "tree" and "previous_tree"
attributes of the Tester class, somewhere around the end of "run_build_system".
