Hmm, for now I created:
I did not put there libdict_* and lib*_data*

Maybe it is better to just let check target depend on build target ?
In general.
It could prevent more missing dependencies in future.

In tail_build, all tests would run in the end, so no chance to stop
the build process if there is something wrong
and _maybe_ it would take more time because of less effective ordering.
But there is no guarantee for ordering anyway and I can't see any
problem with this.

Does it make sense to add:
check : build dependency ?

Or do people use make check with demand to build only what is
necessary for tests and nothing more ?
