i would object to that.  I always run "make check" on all builds, and I do
not yet always have valgrind installed/configured.  I suspect that is true
for many users, too.

I would not object to an --enable-valgrind configure option that would
enable running unit tests with valgrind, or even a configure test that
detects a working VG install.  But it should not be required.
