There is no generic script right now. It depends on whether or not a
generic script will help. Can it made generic or test would still need
their customizations anyway.

Furthermore, this generic script will become a dependency for tests and
will need to be included in the install targets and also when O=dir
cases. hence, the question on how generic can the script be and whether
are not tests can avoid customization.

I am finding in the case of selftests the generic framework sometimes
add more complexity. In some cases it is worth it like lib.mk, however
it takes work to override it as well.

I have some reservations about introducing a generic script for this.

thanks,
