This is not true of Phobos; the Phobos makefile has a separate rule for building (and running) unittests. The OP's question is, how to make this run only a single module's tests as opposed to the entire Phobos (which takes a while, since some of the tests are quite extensive).

I believe that it's possible. I think that Andrei does it (he posted commands related to that at one point, but I couldn't get them to work), but I don't know how. I just always run the whole test suite. This is a question that would probably be better asked on either the main list or the Phobos list, since the ones most likely to know are Phobos devs, and a number of them do not pay attention to D.Learn.
