I'm not sure I understand.  The normal way to add a new directory is to

to, write dir/, and add something like
  SUBDIRS += dir

to a above dir (or sub/../dir if more than one level above).
Then, unless you have maintainer-mode turned off, just run 'make'.[1]

Which part of this does not work for you, or which part is it that you
would like to make easier for the developer?

BTW, mentioning that 'dir' directory name literally in is
important for automake to enable rebuilding rules, see 'info Automake

I'd like to understand your use case in (1) first.
