I tend to think it's better to leave them be if there's no
real good reason to move them.

Note that "make clean" doesn't delete gdb.sum/gdb.log,
"make distclean" does.  If "make clean" is just going to be "rm -f $subdirs",
then to preserve that it seems simplest to keep gdb.sum and gdb.log out
of the subdirs.

(nit, on "sequential-tests"/"parallel-tests" -- it's the run, not the
tests that are sequential or parallel.  I'd suggest dropping
"-tests" from the dir names or use "-run", to avoid potential confusion.)
