... and also isn't what you meant; `myfile' is not a prerequisite for
building the program `test', right?

You need to create a phony target that does both; builds `test', creates
`myfile', and perhaps runs it.

What about something like:

TESTS = my-test
.PHONY: my-test
check_PROGRAMS = test
test_SOURCES = test.cpp

my-test: test$(EXEEXT) myfile
        ./test -f myfile
