I have renamed a few files, for example ..

 tester/rtems/testing/coverage/symbol_sets.cfg ->

and that file now contains:

sets = score


I have added code to get the build path, BUILD-PREFIX and BSP from the
executable's path and check each executable is from the same build tree.

I may check these against the RLD's automatically detected values after loading
the libraries.

I have add the code to load the libraries and the required symbols.

This means some of the code to read the sets and then load the libraries and
create a symbol file can be removed.

I have not attempted to build to the code and will do this over the weekend or
next week.

No problem, when you can.

Thank you.
