Hi Magnus,

thank you so much for doing this patch! Having a convenient way to run 
tests from the Makefiles is something I have wanted for a very long time 
:) Unfortunately I don't have the required Makefile knowledge to review 
this, but if I can help out with testing the patch, just let me know.
