That is certainly something that can be fixed. I'd welcome a patch to so.

Always building the tests ensures that they are kept up do date with changes in the rest of the code base. If they are not built along with the rest of the code base then they will eventually become out of sync and someone has to fix them later, possibly months after the change that introduced the compilation errors were made.
