That makes sense. I added the else to explicitly set it:

diff --git a/tests/Makefile.am b/tests/Makefile.am
index 4c4af7843..1b0c7d333 100644
--- a/tests/Makefile.am
+++ b/tests/Makefile.am
@@ -598,6 +598,8 @@ addsections_LDADD = $(libelf)
 # Don't include any -I CPPFLAGS. Except when we install our own elf.h.
 system_elf_libelf_test_CPPFLAGS =
+system_elf_libelf_test_CPPFLAGS = -I$(top_srcdir)/libelf
 system_elf_libelf_test_LDADD = $(libelf)

Pushed with that change.
