Not sure.  There's something to be said for the equivalence Peter
proposes above.  What you actually wanted, as I understood it, was
that "make world" plus "make check-world" should test absolutely
everything.  I don't have a problem with the idea that some bits
of test scaffolding don't get built until you do "make check-world".
The real problem here is that "make check-world" missed some tests,
which Peter agrees is a bug.

Andres complained about insufficient parallelism in the "check"
target, but that seems to me to be something to address separately;
redefining the set of actions to be taken is not the way to fix that.
