Executing tests during package building?

Dear Mentors,

I am packaging a software which includes tests to check if the binary is
fully funcionnal. However, those tests are much more processor intensive
than the compilation itself. Is there a general policy about what to do
with them? Is it enough to run them when testing the package before
upload, or should them be ran systematically by debian/rules, thus using
cpu power of the buildds?

In this case, the tests take eight minutes on a 1.8 GHz G5.

Have a nice day,
