 so at is a change that 
makes plain 'make' just build and that's it. Unless somebody speaks up, I'll 
submit it on Monday.

 Buildbot maintainers, if your build uses plain 'make' and you still want to 
keep running the tests, please update to use targets that are invoked now by 
the default target (what it is exactly is non-trivial, because it depends, 
but if I'm reading the Makefile correctly, 'make unitcheck' should generally 
be it).
