if you read the README a bit further there are some instructions for

Confirm that the build has been successful:

$ mkdir -p $VICI/logs
$ make check

Its quite spectacular to watch some of the GUI's running by themselves -
but it does grab the mouse which can be inconvenient if you want to do
something else.
