First off, what you're trying to do fits much better with the 'check'
target than with the 'installcheck' target: the former is meant to test
things before you ever run 'make install', the latter is meant to test
those things you have actually created with 'make install'; also, it is
nice if 'make installcheck' does not change the object files in the
build tree.

So, to summarize, I'd rename your installcheck-local target to

> check_PROGRAMS = Master Slave

For your actual problem, namely avoiding the shell wrapper for
uninstalled programs, try adding -no-install to Master_LDFLAGS and
Slave_LDFLAGS.  You still won't be able to debug easily on w32 systems,

> check_SCRIPTS  = lt-Master

What is this line for?
