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.
