I'm not sure I understand you.  subsequentcheck is orthongonal to 
JUnitTest.  There are JUnitTests that are not in subsequentcheck, and 
there are tests other than JUnitTests that are in subsequentcheck.

(For mostly historical reasons, the difference between unitcheck and 
subsequentcheck is that the latter depends on a fully populated instdir 
before running its tests.  After the transition from the two-stage 
dmake-based build system to gbuild was completed, this could have been 
cleaned up, moving the relevant dependencies into the individual tests. 
But then again, the distinction between unitcheck and subsequentcheck 
continued to look somewhat useful, to have a default make target that 
runs some but not all of the tests.  Now that that odd default make 
target is going away, it should indeed become possible to drop the 
distinction between unitcheck and subsequentcheck.)
