FWIW, I think it can be handled pretty neatly in two different ways, at 
the bottom of config.mak:


This also is picked up if you'd have "export LARGE_TESTS=no; ... other 
stuff ... ; make fate". Picking up random unprefixed variables like this 
might not be ideal.

Alternatively, slightly weirder looking but guarding against that, would 

# If LARGE_TESTS=foo is set on the make command line, this is ignored
# Overwrite CONFIG_LARGE_TESTS with whatever LARGE_TESTS was set to.
