No, you have to build ECL in order to use the tests. This is so because the
tests are not part of "make check" and have to be installed in a clean
directory (the ANSI test suite cannot be run in a read-only directory and
leaves a lot of temporary files behind). So the steps would be

mkdir build-directory
cd build-directory
/path/to/ecl/src/configure ...
make install
make check

Alternatively, instead of "make check" you may enter the
build-directory/tests directory and run some of the other options: "make
all", "make test-sbcl", etc, etc
