use check_PROGRAMS to compile tests on make check

Currently tests are treated like normal programs and are therefore built during
`make`. This requires having all test dependencies installed to succeed. Among
the test dependencies are packages which depend on cairo itself, causing a
circular dependency.
To work around this one could compile cairo first without running tests,
compile all test dependencies and then get back to running the tests. This can
easily be made possible by using "check_PROGRAMS" for the tests instead of
"noinst_PROGRAMS", resulting in the tests getting built when `make check` is
The attached patch does just that
