Nope. When you cal "make check" a second time, no test runs again,
'cause the log files exist already.

Again, it works only when there is no log file. The second time you
call it, nothing happens:

~/src/emacs> make -C test/automated tramp-tests.log
make: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/emacs/test/automated'
make: `tramp-tests.log' is up to date.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/emacs/test/automated'

If you want to rerun a test, you must remove the log file
manually. Inconvenient.

Nope. See the commentary section of tramp-test.el. Try

~/src/emacs> env REMOTE_TEMPORARY_FILE_DIRECTORY=/sudo::/tmp make -C 
test/automated tramp-tests.log

It will ask you for the sudo password, but you don't see the prompt.

Best regards, Michael.
