There's an argument for reducing the amount of stuff done by the toplevel
Makefile - for example, by making include/ into a normal subdirectory the
build recurses into, and installing the miscellaneous headers from there.
begin-end-check currently involves a hardcoded list of header paths
(installed-headers in the toplevel Makefile). It would be better for it
to run in each directory and work off the headers list from that
directory, like your test does, but doing so without duplicating rules
would also imply moving toplevel header installation to a subdirectory.
