I've restored this functionality now (which I accidentally removed).

make check-maybe

is incremental as before, due also depends on the files being tested.

Strictly, yes, this is true, but then I think this is true of other
parts of the Emacs build -- elisp-mode.elc depends only on
elisp-mode.el (in the makefile), although, IIUC, elisp-mode.elc also
depends on cl-generic and it's macros. In practice, the dependencies I
have added make a reasonable guess, I think.

Still, your point is well made. I think both incremental and
unconditional tests need to be there.
