If you configure with SWORD_BUILD_TESTS="Yes" CMake will configure the tests.

You can then issue 'make tests' from the top build directory and it
will build _and_ attempt to run all the tests. Now it fails for me on
the first one because of a missing directory "../../osistest". I have
a feeling this is because I force the build to be out-of-stream? I
don't really know, as I have never run our test suite. But if you want
to compile and run the tests manually, all you need to do is specify
'make tests' and they'll be built in the tests/ subdirectory of your
build dir.
