You can indeed run the testsuite.

However, note that the testsuite is not included in the "-src" tarball
to keep the distribution size down. There is a separate "-testsuite"
tarball which includes the testsuite/ subtree. This can be extracted
into the parent directory of the source tree. You should find this
tarball in the usual place [1].
