Just that, iff you decide to go for the latter, pretty please don't use
a generic name like $(selftests) but a name that makes it clear this is
a gnulib variable, for example `gl_selftests'.  Otherwise the stacking-
software-made-hard department will want gnulib to _not_ use
  selftests = ..
  selftests += ..
and require the gnulib user to initialize this variable.  Not nice.

Thank you,
