I understood that the files generated
by Automake don't care about configured libraries
for computing $(myexe_DEPENDENCIES).

If I manually define this variable using $(myexe_LDADD),
then I have problems with removing all the -L and -l
arguments. And if I try to use additional dependency
lines listing the configured libraries instead, then
I loose the build rule for myexe. Is this correct?

It would be nice if we could find some improvement
here. Maybe an $(EXTRA_myexe_DEPENDENCIES), to be
defined in
