Actually no, but now you should be able to do solve the problem yourself
by declaring $(TEST_LOGS) as a dependency of .PRECIOUS, without Automake
getting in the way.

I don't want to make that the default behaviour, but if you find it
useful and want to suggest it to other people, I won't refuse a
documentation patch ;-)
