The only difference between 'check' and 'installcheck' should be the
location of the tested binaries, which should already be located
properly if PATH is set. If there is anything else that needs to be set
up first (such as some test input data or a temporary directory
structure) that should be done explicitly in a prerequisite makefile target.

I would avoid any obscure mechanism such as environment variables to
distinguish the two use-cases.
