It shows that your patch is not enough, for the issue I presumed your
report was about.

Harald, please consider *providing more and useful information* if you
want help.  I for one can't read your mind, and almost every first post
of yours leaves me wanting for a crystal ball as to what has gone wrong.
This makes me for one be less and less enthusiastic about replying.
With newbies, or people where I do not know whether they are newbies or
not, one cannot expect more, at least the first couple of times they
post.  But you bee given hints before.  This is no service hotline.
I heartily recommend reading this (available in several languages):

We have now again wasted 5 messages without getting to the point of the
problem you encounter: I still have no clue what's going wrong on your
side, and I bet you aren't happy about the situation either.

This example setup does not expose your bug:

mkdir sub
touch sub/a.c sub/
cat > <<EOF
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([foreign subdir-objects])
cat > <<EOF
bin_PROGRAMS = foo
foo_SOURCES = sub/a.c sub/
autoreconf -vi

| [...]
| autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
| installing `./compile'

So, what really is the problem, and how can it be exposed, 
and with which software versions?
