This is an unusual use of make in my experience (i'm not used to seeing
variables exported in what looks like a rule dependency line), but i'm
not particularly fluent in make in the first place, so take that with a
grain of salt.

As a native en_US speaker, i have no problem with "make test-serially"
(though my usual idiom is to invoke the test suite with "make check" for
some reason).

But if this is useful for even one person who actively cares about the
notmuch codebase (Tomi), i think it should be merged.
