D'oh.  I've always thought *that* to be the reason for
   make check TESTS='only some tests'

not working.  But that's not true!  It's because the check-am rule calls
        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) check-TESTS

so the information is lost only for the second make!  (I know you knew
all this, but I had to make it clear to myself.)

Can we fix this somehow?  For example, by either
        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) check-TESTS TESTS='$(TESTS)'

or by simply avoiding the sub-make at all?  (I will try to find this out
myself, but maybe you know the answer right away).  Hmm, the addition on
the command line may be too long, given very many tests.
