Since Go 1.14 (#14295), go build -o $dir ./... has allowed one to build multiple packages and write their executables to a directory.

Since go test -c is closely analogous to go build, I expected it to be able to do the same. However, it does not:

~/src/golang.org/x/mod$ go build -o "$(mktemp -d)/" ./...

~/src/golang.org/x/mod$ go test -c -o "$(mktemp -d)/" ./...
cannot use -c flag with multiple packages

The same holds for os.DevNull:

~/src/golang.org/x/mod$ go build -o /dev/null ./...

~/src/golang.org/x/mod$ go test -c -o /dev/null ./...
cannot use -c flag with multiple packages

@bcmills
Should the -o $dir flag generate one executable file for all packages or multiple executables for each package ?
