Re: About the Makefile target "check"

   What I mean by intuitive is that many other build tools [2], which have
   standard tasks, use the name "test" for exactly this purpose. So, many 
   programmers can immediately reuse their knowledge to such simple tasks as 
   running tests, which makes it easier (at least a bit) to join a project.
   Reuse of their knowledge _is_ better solution that making them to read 

I would hope that any programmer can run a simple command, no matter
what it is, by reading a simple README or INSTALL file, and not depend
on the rest of the world to adapt after him.
