Install category Kyuafiles from their category directories.
Move the installation of /usr/tests/lib/Kyuafile from src/tests/lib/ to src/lib/. This is to keep the src/tests/ hierarchy unaware of the rest of the tree, which makes things clearer in general. In particular: 1) Everything related to the construction of /usr/tests/lib/ is kept in src/lib/. There is no need to think about different directories and how they relate to each other. (The same applies for libexec, usr.bin, etc. but these are not yet handled.) 2) src/tests becomes the place to keep cross-functional test programs and nothing else, which also helps in simplifying things.
