Ah, thanks Gerald...

It looks like there are two problems: We need to copy the test
executables to WS_BIN_PATH if we're running under Windows,
Right... is this not possible to achieve by massaging %PATH% or 
something? Though I do see that tshark is coped to wireshark-gtk2 before 
it is used in the build process.
To be honest, I'm not sure that epan/ is the right place for these tests 
anyway (they ended up there mostly because tvbtest is there, and because 
setting up all the autoconf magic in a new directory is a bit scary). A 
separate directory for test binaries would make much more sense. But I 
suspect that's a side-issue here.
and the test
executables need proper manifests.
Uh huh. What does that involve?

Sorry to ask stupid questions - I really am a bit of a newbie when it comes to building things for windows; I've been somewhat stabbing in the dark to even get this far :/.
