So? --plugin-path is supposed to be relative to the CWD, not to the VLC 
binary. As it happens tests are run from src/, hence ../modules/.

That's an easy one, just move libvlc-control and its test suite out of src/ 
into something that's built AFTER modules/.

Still, should try to play a file format which is guaranteed to be supported, 
_not_ Ogg Vorbis, and force an "harmless" audio output, e.g. file.
