How does this revised webrev look [1]? I have fixed indentation and 
removed remnants of the old build system. I have also fixed the test's 
Makefile, which no longer worked due to the removal of the old build 
system. I would like to point out that like the inheritedChannel test 
which this test is derived from, this test expects pre-built libraries 
to be checked into version control. I understand this is required due to 
test systems not necessarily having the required build environment.
