using color-tests backwards-portably

Hi Ralf,

I'd like to use automake-1.11's color-tests option
in libguestfs -- and more importantly, parallel-tests,
but we may have a build-from-clone requirement on
systems with automake older than 1.11.
On those systems, it's fine to ignore or disable these
two unsupported options.

I proposed a "solution",

but it's too ugly.

Can you think of another way?

[I know I could roll my own via, like what coreutils
used prior to automake-1.11, but would rather use automake's own
support for those options, when possible. ]
