Per our discussion on the webex today about getting verbosity out of running 
"make check" (e.g., to see what the heck is going on in

I checked the Automake docs: they (strongly) discourage the use of the serial 
test suite.

Instead, they suggest setting VERBOSE=1 (not V=1).  This will cause the 
stdout/stderr of any failed test to be output after all the tests in a single 
dir are run.  E.g.,

    make check VERBOSE=1

will do the trick.  Output from multiple failed tests is clearly delineated 
from each other, so you can tell which output is which.

(this is actually better than the old serial tester, which will output all 
output from all tests after each test -- even the successful ones)
