In the gbuild build system, the default goal is "allandcheck", which
itself depends on "all" (building) and "check" (running unit tests).
You currently can:
- only run the tests with "make -sr check"
- only build the stuff without any testing with "make -sr all"

We clearly want to run unittest by default. It might make sense to
rename the current "all" target to "buildonly" and "allandcheck" to
"all" to be more explicit. The GNU make conventions are unclear if
checks should be run by the default target (However, they are clear on
that the default target should be "all" -- which we currently violate):


Im open for opinions on this.

The logic for this is in solenv/gbuild/Module.mk.

Best Regards,
