Hi Chuck,

And that would magically both run the test at build time (the only time
when it makes sense - bust packages if the self-test fails, so that we
don't run b0rked compression libraries underneath openvpn or
thereabouts) and suppress the output at the same time? :-)

I'll see to the issue (and to Pedro's suggestion), but it may take a few
days until I get around to it. Taxes pending...
