If you pull a copy of the tramp source code such as by git then
running make check will run the tests.  For example:

  git clone git://
  cd tramp
  autoreconf --install
  make check

If it passes all of the tests then a 'make install' will install it
into the /usr/local tree.  This is for a source code installation.
GNU is all about the source code after all.  But most people install
emacs through a software distribution.  It comes with the operating
system.  When installed like that the tests were already run when the
source was built into the distribution package.
