WHAT: Reduce the number of tests run by make check
WHY: Some of the tests will not work properly until Open MPI is

WHERE: See below.

We have been having many problems with make check over the years. People
tend to change things and not update the tests, which lead to tarball
generation failures and nightly test run failures. Furthermore, many of
the tests test things which have not changed for years.
So with this in mind, I propose only running the following tests when
'make check' is run:
We we would no longer run the following tests:
These tests would not be deleted from the repository, just made so they
do not run by default.
