-1. This comes up every so often; the problem is that "make CFLAGS=-g"
(or whatever) followed by "make check" will compile the test programs with
different flags than the user intended.

That may not be the most compelling reason in the world, but it also
doesn't take very long to build the tests compared to the rest of the
code, so the reason doesn't have to be all that compelling.
