I simply ran `make check' inside the Docker image. The only
customization was to allow `make bootstrap' to work on the host machine:

echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space
docker run -it --rm -v /my/emacs/checkout:/src debian:stretch bash

apt update -qq
DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt install --no-install-recommends -y -qq 
-o=Dpkg::Use-Pty=0 libc-dev gcc make autoconf automake libncurses-dev 
gnutls-dev git
cd /src
make check
