Weird. Is this 'make check' thing BSD-centric?
no. it's a standard part of the gnu build system ...
I've never seen that recommended for anything in Linux before. What does it do exactly?
per, e.g., <http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/~iam/docs/tutorial.html>
if i'm reading the makefile correctly, a 'check' target *is* defined here ...
