I suspect getting a segfault might indicate an actual bug somewhere.

I think it was basically copied from the other Makefiles, where cleaning
all elc files would mean a very long subsequent compilation.  It might
make sense to break the pattern for the test/ subdirectory though.

I'm seeing eieio-tests failing also in master.  This seems to be an
actual bug, in the definition of `cl-typep' I think.  I've opened a new
bug for this (Bug#27718).

I have a fix for the subr-tests failed, as for the others, I don't know
enough about the compilation process to untangle it yet.  I think we
should just leave the inline-function expansion part out for now, at
which point I believe your patch won't be making anything worse, so it
should be okay to install.
