please, please don't do that.  well, at least not anywhere in Apache-Test :)

some of us use TEST_FILES insanely frequently, so removing that is kinda out
of the question.

I'm not sure if it will help in your specific case, but instead of 'make
test' you can 'make run_tests' which skips the config/reclean part, making
life a bit quicker.  if you're doing non-apache related stuff for your test
you can also -no-httpd (via APACHE_TEST_EXTRA_ARGS if using make) to skip
httpd config, stop, and start.  that plus run_tests gives you back minutes
of your testing life if using A-T to run your test suite, are stuck with
make for running tests, and want to test a non-httpd-oriented test...
