Well, the shell is eager to complete on "tests" on tab.
And the Autotools support "make check", so it is quite
common.  There is no need to remove "test", check can
be a simple alias.

I can provide help to provide other useful targets, such
as "make dist" and "make distcheck".

Actually, is it on purpose that Autoconf and Automake are
not used?

I have still plenty to discover about tcc, but I'll have
a look :)

What do you think about the VPATH-builds related changes?
