Because gcc had no official testsuite at that time, so obviously, there
was no testsuite folder (directory).
We did have a package called c-torture that was released separately from
gcc, which included the beginnings of a regression testsuite. It was
eventually added to gcc after resolving some copyright issues, and
formed the core of what is now the gcc testsuite. You might be able to
find a 8 year old copy if you google for it. I don't know offhand where
to find a copy. It is an oversight that we didn't archive a copy of it
on our ftp server.
There was a period during which c-torture was in the FSF GCC development
tree, but not part of the gcc releases. I suspect gcc-2.95 was during
this period. The cvs/svn tree might be a little confused during this
period, as the testsuite dir might be on mainline, but not on release
branches. Or it might be on release branches but not in release tarballs.
