Thank you for paying attention to those details.

"make check" is the intended route.  It installs in
test/testdir/inst/ and runs each of the tests against
that installation.  The final one, test/cleanup, removes
the installation.

But each individual test can be invoked by just invoking the
test script itself, assuming it has the boilerplate that it
should have at the top.  It will install, if necessary, and
then run the test.  It does not clean up, so it's most
useful when developing the test itself.  test/cleanup (or
/bin/rm -fr test/testdir) should be used if code needs to be
modified and then tested.

There's also "make distcheck", it's worth doing every once
in a while.  It checks to see that no files are left where
they shouldn't be.

If you let me know how it fails I'll look into it.  It's not
a rigorous test.
