I think this depends on the default behaviour of 'make' under those conditions. If you configure with --quick-build and then type 'make', does it do a full build?
I configured XEmacs with --quick-build and the generated Makefile still has 'all' as the first target. So assuming that 'make' when configured for quick-build will do a quick build, there should be no problem with making 'test' depend on 'all'.
