They will, which may make it easier to just build the files by hand

I think it's fine how you did in the patch. Most of the time, binfile
is based on testfile, so Pedro's suggestion would work. But sometimes,
we pass something else than binfile as the compilation destination (or
binfile was overrident), so we would have to remember to use something
else than testfile to build the error message, it seems easy to forget.
I think that consistently using the same expression as is passed to
gdb_compile's dest parameter is a good approach. Or maybe the error
should be handled in gdb_compile instead of in each individual test,
that would be even less error-prone.
Of course, that doesn't hold if the issue about having the full paths in
the test message is about the reproducibility (test names will have
different names depending on the path where you build gdb). But since
it's only for error test names, I don't know if that's a real problem.
