Except for its own directory libmpdec has all that (See LIBTEST.txt). Library
tests are in the tests/ directory, python tests in the python/ directory.

Are you suggesting to build a static library and then use that to build
the module? I remember this didn't work on Windows (not to mention AIX and such).
