Let's make an option (that would go to AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS) to enable relaxed
check using DESTDIR.  `make installcheck' would be skipped if this option
is used.

For example, reiserfsprogs installs binaries to /sbin, and they has a good
reason for that.  Using DESTDIR is the only way that reiserfsprogs passes
`make distcheck'.  It's still better than `make dist' for making real
