I don’t think I explained clearly enough, sorry. All three options

I don't think it should be a build-time dependency. If the dependency
is not fulfilled, you should still be able to build and run eds
for running those tests, of course).

I agree with Ángel, build time dependency is out of question. Also
because soft dependencies are easy to overlook, thus one might easily
not even notice the new test suit.

I'm not sure how you'd like to have done the test-time dependency. If
the files would not be available, will the whole test suit be skipped,
or the test will fail with an error? The first option is similar to
build time dependency (being it a soft dependency). The second option
might be a bit limiting, no?

That lefts us with a git submodule. What is the difference between the
git submodule and direct inclusion in the sources? If you want to cover
more than vCard tests for the evolution-data-server (like testing also
other vCard parsers, from other libraries), then it seems to me that
the cleanest solution would be to provide installed-tests from the git
repo as you have it, just define different "targets". I mean, I miss a
gain in the inclusion of the project as a git submodule in the
evolution-data-server. It's possible I'm overlooking something though.
