I fear that this would be rather clunky, since there are already about
90 test files. The test makefile already supports individual builds,
though, and so I haven't changed this (not deliberately, anyway, the
implementation has).


make abbrev-tests


make lisp/abbrev-tests

runs the abbrev-tests and dumps to standard out, while

make lisp/abbrev-tests.log

generates the log file.
