It's not the end of the world, no. But "make check" isn't supposed to
build the tests; it's supposed to run them. "make all" (or just "make"
for short) is supposed to build the tests, since, you know, they're part
of "all".

If it took a long time to build the tests, I'd be willing to bend, but I
just don't see the point. Unnecessary optimization is the root of all
evil. (Okay, 65% of all evil.)
