I don't know if it is any better than the solution you found, but 
another possibility may be to use the library_la_LIBADD variable, which 
I read is supposed to be used to list objects to be added into the library.
The idea is to list a file generated from 'src/resources/code_archive.S'
in this variable. However, according to the documentation I read, this
would have to be a *.lo file (Libtool object), so you would have to 
write Makefile rules to create such a thing (i.e. code_archive.lo 
instead of code_archive.o).

There are various suggestions on how to deal with built sources in the 
Automake manual:
