We you run plain make in a module, it the default target already runs the
unitcheck target. If you run make from the top-level, it also runs slowcheck.

If you are doing really tricky work (like changing a very lowlevel class), I
would recommend to also run 'make subsequentcheck' -- or at least closely watch
the Linux-RHEL6-x86_64_14-with-check tinderbox that runs these tests too (as
you can see from all the [ build SCK ] in its log.
