You only have to build the entirety of Guix once.  Later invokations of
"make check-system" will re-use the compiled modules from the previous
"make" invokation, and only compile those that changed in the mean time.

Note that 'run-basic-test' also builds a derivation of your Guix
checkout to make it available in the VM.  I suspect this is what you are
referring to?

For out-of-tree tests, you can try to hack 'gnu/tests.scm' and
'build-aux/run-system-tests.scm' to your needs.
