What we have right now can be executed by running 'make test' in the
base directory. So you can look at the 'test' makefile targets in each
subdir to see what they are doing. There are a bunch of unit tests (but
not for all modules), and a handful of regression tests in the top level
tests dir.

One of the things you should evaluate is whether it would be best to
extend the current make-based system, or use some other existing testing
framework, or write something new.
