build testsuite or not?

Okay I have one more question about my packaging of ghc for Fedora.
For long I always build the testsuite for every release perf build on all archs
(for an example see the build.log links on
Is this a useful meaningful thing to do?
I thought it good to have it as a reference for ghc builds on Fedora
and EPEL, but it does add a considerable amount of time to builds
(specially for the slower ARM arch's) so it is not without cost.
So I am wondering how useful it is to continue running the testsuite
for each "production" build I do.
What do others and other distros, etc do for final releases?
