But that's the point: I'm not trying to compile. The trap manual says
that tramp now comes with a test suite, and it supports calling "make
check" to generate a virtual run of tramp. It is because "make" is a
conventional command for compiling that I had no idea what the tramp
manual was talking about. There is apparently a "suite" of utilities
used with tramp.
