It would make sense to have this info in the generated test-suite.log,
because people who report test failures frequently send this file
as part of their bug report.

Other than that, e.g. for "make [all]" and "make install", this added
info is useless.

So, I think your suggestion should be implemented in Automake's
test suite drivers, not in maint.mk.
