Speaking about simple tests: after adding stuff to the
autoconf/automake files (or modifying them), i. e. to all
the *.am files, you can easily test this with:

./configure --build=`./config.guess` --host=avr
make distcheck

This will build a distribution tarball (avr-libc-${version}.tar.bz2),
unpack it again, and try to build inside the unpacked tree.  Obvious
mistakes like forgotten file additions will become apparent that way.
