Uwe L. Korn commented on ARROW-859:
-----------------------------------

I'm a bit undecided on this. While compiling unit tests by default makes it 
easier for potential contributors to spot errors in their contribution, it 
costs unnecessary compilation time if you only consume arrow. 

[~wesmckinn] What was the motivation for this change? (I probably saw it but 
can't remember it anymore)

> [C++] Do not build unit tests by default?

> This is strictly a subjective call -- since more people are using Arrow as a 
> thirdparty library, it might be preferably to only opt-in to running the unit 
> tests (vs. currently: explicitly opting out) for Arrow development.
