All right. Thank you.

In BSD system, '/usr/obj' + <current directory> is used for build directory.
(from now on, I say it 'obj' directory.)

        % cd /home/owner/prog
        % make obj                      <= make 'obj' directory
        /usr/obj/home/owner/prog created for /home/owner/prog
        % make
        cc -O -pipe -Wall -I/home/owner/prog   -c /home/owner/prog/main.c
        % ls *.o
        ls: No match.                   <= source directory is read only.
        % cd /usr/obj/home/owner/prog
        % ls *.o
        main.o   ...            <= *.o files are wrtten in 'obj' directory.

To support BSD build system, global locate tag files not only in source
directory but also in 'obj' directory.

        % cd /home/owner/prog
        % make obj                              <= make 'obj' directory
        % gtags /usr/obj/home/owner/prog        <= write tag files in 'obj'
        % ls G*                                    directory.
        ls: No match.
        % global -x main
        main              83 main.c        main(argc, argv)
        % cd /usr/obj/home/owner/prog
        % ls G*

If there is a convention in automake, I can support it.
