Can I put a message after tests are run?

If a test suite is run, one might get a message at the end such as:

3 of 86 tests failed
(1 tests were not run)
Please report to address@hidden

Is it possible to put a message before/in/after this block, explaining
why some tests will be skipped. For example

"1 test was skipped since you did not configure for distributed

so the user has some idea why tests might be skipped? 

I've seen in some packages (perhaps not done with automake) something

SKIP: foo           SKIPPED on this architecture.
SKIP: foobar        SKIPPED since you did not link with the gsl

Is it possible to one or boht of these with automake? I know I can
echo a message in the test, but that looks rather ugly, as it appears
on another like.
