Hmm.  You interpret check-local differently from how I always did.
Thinking about it, I can see why you do it, and it's consistent with
the other check_* targets.  Your cstest.exe can be put in check_PROGRAMS
and will DTRT then.  You can put cstest_script in all-local.

It would be consistent if the current check-local functionality were
gotten with check-hook, and check-local a prerequisite of check-TESTS.

I'm not sure whether I'm willing to give up backward compatibility in
order to establish consistency, or whether just the documentation should
be more explicit about this exception.

Thanks for the report.
