Oops, I apologize for my mistake.

So it seems you need a wrapper script:

TESTS = my-test
check_PROGRAMS = test
test_SOURCES = test.cpp
my-test: test$(EXEEXT)
        ...commands to create myfile and create/touch my-test wrapper

(Actually, the above example contains a redundancy, because all
check_PROGRAMS are built before the TESTS are run.
So either the prerequisite test$(EXEEXT) can be deleted, or
check_PROGRAMS can be changed to EXTRA_PROGRAMS.)

Hope my advices help you to find the solution, though they contain
errors.  ;-)

Have a nice day,
