I have  a test suite  for the  xmlrpc package (I will add it as well) 
and to start
it I just:

$ cd lib/xmlrpc/test
$ make
<run all tests producing stdout noise and either suceed or fails>

Dead simple. Going for the test server for jungerl is overkill IMO.

I propose that we go for the dead simple approach when it comes to 
build/test
requirements on each lib as well.

Mandatory files/directories:
lib/App/ebin/
lib/App/include/
lib/App/Makefile

Optional files/directories:
lib/App/test/Makefile (optional?)
lib/App/priv (optional)
lib/App/doc (optional)

Cheers
