If I run epan\reassemble_test.exe (or exntest.exe) on the Windows
builder, it complains about not being able to find glib.  If I copy them
to the wireshark-gtk2 directory, they run fine if they were compiled
using Visual C++ 6.0.  If they were compliled using Visual C++ 2005
Express they complain about not being able to find MSVCR80.DLL.

It looks like there are two problems: We need to copy the test
executables to WS_BIN_PATH if we're running under Windows, and the test
executables need proper manifests.
