Even if you think the behavior is correct (I'm not convinced), the
implementation is certainly confusing.  I don't like the way that
src/test/Makefile gets bypassed for decisions about which of its
subdirectories get built for what.  Any normal person would expect
that src/test/Makefile is what determines that.
