It's not all that uninteresting, because "make check" is essentially an
instance of exercising the relocatability feature.  The fact that things
like rpath might get in the way doesn't mean that we should ignore other
problems.

(I'm not sure about Debian's policy, but the RPMs do --disable-rpath for
unrelated policy reasons, so there shouldn't be any problem with
relocating an RPM-based installation...)
