libtest* modules in ATK and Gail

I just submitted this as a bug in bugzilla, but thought I would bring it up here as well:

The Gail and ATK modules install a number of libtest* modules (libgail and libferret also fall into this category) into $(libdir) which are not intended to be linked to applications. They should probably be put in the gtk modules directory instead. That is, either $(libdir)/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/modules or $(libdir)/gtk-2.0/modules.

This would reduce clutter, and make sure people didn't link to them. Each of the modules should also be linked with the "-module -avoid-version" flags as well (many of the modules from gail include version sufixes, which makes them look even more like real libraries).
