I don think this is useful:

"make check" is only rarely run in contrast to "make".  Thus always
building the test programs helps finding build problems early.

For a final build this does not matter because a "make check" should be
run anyway.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
