This is the "appbundle" directory, it is the default on macOS but it can
be disabled through cmake -DENABLE_APPLICATION_BUNDLE=OFF.

To fix the tests (and as a side-effect avoid writing to the program
directory), I propose to make use of the WIRESHARK_EXTCAP_DIR
environment variable to locate the test utility:

The only other test that writes to the program directory is the name
resolution test, that test writes the 'hosts' file to the program
directory which is unfortunate if you want to run tests as a different
user than the one who built it.
Kind regards,
