I think this confusion probably resulted from the move of certain
things from contrib to src/test/modules, although that might be wrong.
At any rate, just as contrib isn't built by 'make all', one could
argue that src/test/modules shouldn't be built, either.  Then again,
if 'make check' depends on it, maybe it needs to be.  Either way,
'make world' should certainly build it, I think.

Interesting, 'make check-world' tried to compile test_shm_mq, so I
caught the WaitLatch call there before committing.  I guess it only
did that because src/test/modules/test_shm_mq has a regression test,
though.  work_spi does not, so even though they're both under
src/test/modules, one eventually got built and the other did not.
That's not so great.
