Yes, you are right that it makes a lot of sense to separate out the validation tests into something that is run later on the real hardware (not least becuase the build hardware and the runtime hardware may not pass/fail in exactly the same way). The catch is that most build-systems include the tests as one of the build targets and expect to do them at build-time using build-time paths and the source code files, not later, using install-time paths and the files available in the installed package.

We probably could fix this - I must admit I've not really looked at it in any detail. Maybe it's not even too difficult?

it's not that difficult to fix, but it's PITA to keep fixed. Unless you are doing cross-compilation geared project like Android (in which case on-target compilation bitrots instead).
