4.5.1 Running in an Out-of-Source Build

When building out of source (see Section 4.4.1, “Create the Build Directory”), use in the mysql-test directory under the build directory. It is a wrapper script that calls in the source directory and tells it where to look for the binaries, via the MTR_BINDIR environment variable. Attempts to run directly from the source directory will fail.
