make test

Standard target name with makefiles.  I've used this in pretty much all my 
code for years, in python and other languages.  Standardized on it so that I 
don't have to grope around remembering the test command on that project I 
haven't touched in six months.

Of course, this assumes a unixy environment, and that you like gnu make.
