Having decided to think about what I wrote (perhaps I'll get the hang of
doing this *before* I post one day), I assume that 'make check' is really a
post-install test as otherwise it can't use the newly built dll. Thus one
would rather expect some test failures if it was done before installation
(as I might have been trying . . .).

Apologies for my blathering in public.
