It seems it would work if the following two lines are uncommented from
the src/bin/pg_upgrade/Makefile:

  # disabled because it upsets the build farm
  # installcheck: test.sh
  #      MAKE=$(MAKE) bindir=$(bindir) libdir=$(libdir) $(SHELL) $<

As the comment says, it was purposely disabled, probably to avoid
failure on cetain build farm members.

If the attached is result is what you are after, should the
documentation be updated to mention that make installcheck is
purposely disabled, providing the reason for it. Or, should the
intallcheck target be enabled in the Makefile to find out if specific
buildfarm members still complain about it.
