Were you doing a VPATH build using Solaris make?  That is known not to
work.  Last time I looked, fixing this was very hard; in fact I don't
think it could be done reliably (while preserving existing automake

Maybe we should change things so that a VPATH build requires GNU make.
We could do that by emitting a small piece of code specific to GNU
make when srcdir != '.'.  Any thoughts on that?
