I think I got it, I will change my build system the following way:

make check
    Not instrumented (release mode), goal: checking compatibility

make test
    Instrumented (dev mode), goal: helping developers to find bugs

Of course most of tests are shared between both test-suites, but some
may not make sense in either test-suite.
