If I remember correctly, automake needs to know about all the sources so
it can properly set up compilation, dependency tracking, etc.
In cases like this, I think you're supposed to use

EXTRA_m4_SOURCES = getopt1.c getopt.c
m4_LDADD = $(M4OBJS)

in (the snippet can remain unchanged, though
using AC_CONFIG_LINKS instead of a manual echo/$LN_S might be nice).
That way, automake can do its magic based on the source files, and will
build and link them as required.
