Maybe add a phony target that would build the test programs?
Then either specify it manually, along with all, or add it as a

I'm not sure what that's about. I almost always use build_nmh, and usually
with its -s (as part of -dsy or -cdsy), so I start from a clean slate.

I agree with Lyndon and Ken that it's helpful to have it close by.
