I have some feedback. The makefile for common_test/c_src is
a known problem. But the rx driver is about to be replaced,
and when that happens the configure/make for common_test
will be adapted to the OTP build environment.

The reason is that common_test was first developed
outside of OTP so its build tools started off as
completely independent of OTP.
