In theory make distcheck should take care of that (I haven't actually
tried if rpm is make distcheck clean though).

Sorry for missing adding the new files to Makefile.am when adding those
new tests.

Yes, that commit is necessary to make sure that tests don't need to run
under fakechroot to pass. I had much trouble with fakechroot and so
wanted to avoid adding more tests that depended on it. It also helps if
you want to install rpm under some other path than /usr/lib/rpm.
