I guess what I'm having a problem with is something that lives under
src/test/ and is not in fact intended as a test. If you're not interested
in making it into a live test, it's in the wrong place. You might as
well complain that you put C code under doc/src/sgml/ and it didn't get
One idea is to put "check: all" into its makefile, if there's no prospect
of check doing something more than that.
