With latest mozilla-inbound, running reftests via TEST_PATH=x make -C $(OBJDIR) reftest as documented in: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Creating_reftest-based_unit_tests seems to have been broken by something. I now get the error message: Error: Path $OBJDIR/_tests/dist/NightlyDebug.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin doesn't exist.
Seems mach is also broken. Same error with: ./mach reftest layout/reftests/svg/smil/

Is there a workaround for the moment in order to be able to run reftests?
I removed objdir.pth from my local virtualenv and |make reftest| works now. I'm baffled as to why. I guess we should back out bug 841713. I'll do that now.
Will figure it out in bug 841713.

[To be clear, the patch for bug 841713 was backed out.]
The root cause here is that automation.py contains an interpolated path which is relative to the objdir directory where automation.py winds up: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/build/automation.py.in#51 http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/build/automation-build.mk#14 I...don't remember why we do things this way. Presumably we could just preprocess absolute paths into that file and use the single copy in build/.
