#5376: PHPUnit Test Environment Variable

 Switch from `WP_TESTS_DIR` to `WP_DEVELOP_DIR`

 There appears to be two methods to reference WordPress' Core PHPUnit Tests
 setting an environment variable.

 1. `WP_TESTS_DIR` - Used by BuddyPress and WP-CLI (https://github.com/wp-
 2. `WP_DEVELOP_DIR` Used by [https://github.com/tierra/wordpress-plugin-
 tests @tierra/@bpetty] and [https://github.com/WP-API/WP-
 API/pull/65#issuecomment-31384178 most probably WP-API] and Jetpack

 Presumably we'd all like to hook into each others PHPUnit Tests in the
 future and play nice together as per Boone's bootstrapping BP's tests in

 I couldn't find any 'official docs' on which one we should use, either
 `WP_TESTS_DIR` or `WP_DEVELOP_DIR` but I think we should choose one that
 'we all use' and I think the later appears to be the emerging theory, set
 the WP dev root and use it as the base for all the things.
