Right, that is sufficiently simple for me.

I wonder what the best idiom for gnulib should be.  We probably do not
want to require automake CVS just yet.  Should it be the one I'm using:

TESTS += test-gc$(EXEEXT)
check_PROGRAMS += test-gc

or should we do

selftests = test-gc$(EXEEXT)
TESTS += $(selftests)
check_PROGRAMS += $(selftests)


I haven't tested that the latter works, but based on what you write, I
assume it does.

Once we require the next automake release, the $(EXEEXT) could be

Is this on the CVS trunk?  Is there any other automake branch one
should pay attention to, in general?
