[PATCH 02/20] test library: add a test_byte_count




This new function is like test_line_count except it uses "wc -c"
instead of "wc -l". Perhaps this should be a parameter, but I don't
see us needing "wc -m" (chars), "wc -w" (words) etc.

Change a couple of existing tests that use this, I expect to use this
in later patches when adding more tests.
