Yes, this is expected.  test-suite.log is created no matter what, but
the rules associated with creating it fail if the log contains any
failure reports, so that make will quit running and let you investigate
those failures.

As for why test-suite.log was not replayed as part of the make output,
I'm not sure that you had VERBOSE=1 set.  So far, you've only attached
the generated Makefile (but not the source, and didn't show
what command you ran.  You'll need to make your setup easier for others
to reproduce before we can see what you are attempting.

As for the test-suite.log not having much output, it is probably because
your tests are not very noisy.  Running make captured all of the output
of your tests, but if your tests didn't output anything, then the log
has very little to show.  Again, without knowing what your test scripts
are doing, it's hard to reproduce your setup.
