databases/db is an example of this. Actually, I couldn't think of
any way to handle this cleanly so I only told how to handle the test
target to people who were interested in testing the stuff.

databases/db requires the tcl flavor for the tests.

Should we do something about the existing `test' targets?
Should `test' invoke `regress'?

I don't know about standards, but my experience suggests that ``check''
is a good bet for autoconf regress target and ``test'' for perl.
