I think you're right -- I tried to avoid recursing into src/test/modules as much as possible when doing the move, so that it'd not be a bother when someone just wants to build/package the server. But obviously for the purposes of testing the overall build that is the wrong thing to do, and I agree that we should revisit those decisions. > 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. Hmm, does it? AFAICS (toplevel GNUmakefile) only src/test/regress is recursed onto for "make check". > Either way, 'make world' should certainly build it, I think.
