dl01/dl02 fail build when pax not installed

libtests/configure.ac checks for pax, but has no logic to deal with it not being present. This presents itself as a bizarre looking build failure of dl01. I have seen a few people trip over this.

However, this afternoon both Gedare and a student mentioned seeing this and neither had a clue of the issue, I think this needs to be addressed.

Sound configure fail if pax is not present or should dl01/dl02 not be built?
