I'm pretty sure you cannot reference object targets outside of
the current directory and expect it to work.

You can only reference things in the current directory (objects,
directories to traverse down into, etc.) as targets

So when there is a common piece of infrastructure shared by
two drivers, you're really going to have to cope with them
at the same time.
