Unfortunately Automake cannot know which options should be
passed down or not.  The directory options are not the sole
options we don't want.  Either way (passing down options or not)
is unsatisfactory, but at least it's easier for people running
`make distcheck' to pass additional options than it would be to
*suppress* unwanted options.

Yep, that's the way it is documented :)
