[cfe-dev] Clang tests are using "clang-scan-deps" from host system?

Sorry, to clarify, I double checked, it seems like in the test is it
somehow able to correctly associate the tool to the one from the build
dir, but just not printing out the absolute path.
So I guess it uses the search path in the environment variable when
running the test?
Still, I think we should be consistent on using absolute path (so that
it's easier to rerun the commands manually).
