Also note that we skip a number of tests (adding "testing = skip"). Don't
ask me why; I just translated the old makefiles. Some other build targets
are skipped on purpose because they are invoked by a test script. Comments
are in build.conf to describe why a test is skipped.

I'd recommend to use the same strategy as in libsvn_test: run each test
provided on the cmdline (i.e. possibly more than one). Ignore non-integer
arguments. If none were run, then run them all:

    ran_a_test = 0
    for arg in sys.argv[1:]:
        testnum = int(arg)
      except ValueError:
        print 'notice: ignoring argument:', arg

      ran_a_test = 1

    if not ran_a_test:
