You can pass arguments to the testsuite via TESTSUITEFLAGS make variable.
For example, to run just test 318:

 % make check TESTSUITEFLAGS='318'

It looks like this fact is not clearly documented anywhere in the package.

It is mentioned in README-hacking but that file is available from git
only and is not distributed.

Hope that helps,
