Sorry I didn't answered that explicitly: that's exactly the same

Fundamentally there is nothing wrong with either constructs.
The issue is technical: Automake produces only one link rule,
and this rule needs to know the directory where the library will
be installed.

PR/285 suggest a fix which should be fairly easy to do; but I
don't have the time to work on Automake these days.

I don't know, sorry.
