Generally, when you don't see a buildOption in the docs for the 
compiler flag you want, use dflags.

targetPath, described under Build Settings in the docs.

You can override some of the settings for the build types (like 
the unittest build type), but targetPath is not one of them.

I would try to do it using a configuration. Name it whatever you 
want (perhaps "testing"). Set the targetPath in the configuration 
block, then run:

dub -ctesting test
