It depends on the difference between test and release. For us, it is
compiler and configure options. I usually "./configure CFLAGS=-O0". For
test, I "make". For release, I could "make CFLAGS=-O2 prefix=/usr
sysconfdir=/etc localstatedir=/var" (although I don't, since the release
is for another architecture and is packaged). If this suits your needs,
you could add something like the following to your

        $(MAKE) CFLAGS=-O2 prefix=/usr sysconfdir=/etc localstatedir=/var

It depends on your directory structure and the way you build. We use a
single, "AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = dejagnu", and have
"check_PROGRAMS = testsuite/dir1/test1 testsuite/dir2/test2".
