How about picking up a name of an existing source file that is somehow
related to the tests?

If that's not good enough, I think we need some new infrastructure for
this in test/Makefile, e.g. a way of specifying a rule that tells Make
which source files are prerequisites for the given test file, so that
when one of the prerequisites changes, the tests are automatically
