Of course. make-test-deps.emacs-lisp just generates a make file for the
cases where I can infer dependencies based on the name. If there are
special cases, we could just stick the dependencies in to the main
Makefile by hand. Or, alternatively, rewrite make-test-deps.emacs-lisp
to be more intelligent and pull out require forms from the test files.
