You are right.
The one I thought was standard was "nocheck" (probably borrowing from
autotools "make check" to invoke build tests). I saw it in the CDBS
snippet /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/perlmodule.mk (which I wrote myself some
years ago but I am pretty sure someone else added that nocheck support).

If you change your mind, I suspect the fix might only be to inspect
paths in Makefile.am files, e.g. replace
enumerate_LDADD = ../buffy/libbuffy.la
enumerate_LDADD = $(srcdir)/buffy/libbuffy.la
You should be able to test if things work with "make distcheck".
