jonathan@ramona:~/Code/objdir-dbg-mozilla-central $ TEST_PATH=layout/generic/test_bug80713_chrome.html make mochitest-chrome

the TEST_PATH is invalid, and instead of giving a useful error message, what appears is:

JavaScript error: chrome://mochikit/content/server.js, line 557: linkArray is undefined

Getting a test environment setup is really hard when you're new to an area; hopefully this should help improve the situation! :-)

NB: bug 618977 fixed it for mochitest-plain, if we're lucky, the patch there should be applicable
