I thought we circumvented this by emitting dependencies so that
intermediate files weren't deleted.  Do we not?  Maybe I'm really
confused... it's happened before.

Yes, this is a real problem.  The test suite should probably be
required to use AC_EXEEXT.  Bummer.  Could you submit a PR about this?

I don't agree.  I think where something is installed is orthogonal to
whether it is built.  It makes perfect sense to distribute noinst_ or
check_ sources.  It also makes sense not to, sometimes.  That is why
we introduced the dist_ and nodist_ prefixes.
