Hi Ralf,

I was able to reduce the number of files sufficiently so I am currently
not hitting the limit. In the future, when more tests are added, I will
go for your second suggestion. The testsuite/ directory won't suffer much
from a recursive setup. I just need to move out the .as -> .c build rule
to a common rules file included in all the testsuite makefiles as well as
the main build makefile.
