I believe it is desirable to run the tests unconditionally when invoked
via make. People call "make check" for a reason.

Maybe you could even offer the test package name as target. Then one
could call "make -C test/automated tramp-tests",

There is another issue. By redirecting the output to a file, the
password prompt for tramp-tests isn't visible anymore. This is a real
regression, because these tests are intended to run for different remote
file names. Could you pipe the test output through tee or something like
this? I don't know how portable this would be, 'tho.

Best regards, Michael.
