I don't understand way you don't use WITH_TESTS processed
through bsd.own.mk.  You'd presumably have to add it to the list of
supported NO_* options for the bootstrap case, but that's trivial.  Then
you use could use normal MK_* variables.  That would also let you use
WITH(OUT)_TESTS in individual directories and they would always work.

At a glance using WITHOUT_TESTS and NO_TEST internally would simplify
some of the special cases in your patch.
