   Yeah!  But still I want the output of "make check" to be clean.  When
   a test fails, then I expect to see: "FAIL:".

in this case the only thing i can suggest is to post-process the
Makefile to change the "check-TESTS" target near the end to not check
for failures.  you might offend purists, but anyway, this can be done
like so:

 cp Makefile TMP
 grep -v "^[    ]*test ...failed. -eq 0" TMP > Makefile
 rm TMP

note that there is both an embedded tab and a space between the square
braces.  the cp-grep-rm sequence can actually be done by the configure
script itself w/ some AC_CONFIG_COMMANDS construct.  then the only thing
you would have to worry about is future automake breaking the regexp (it
seems unlikely but you never know when GNU hackers are involved ;-).
