I don't know if that means you finally fixed it, or if this is
the start of a problem report.  In the latter case there is not
much I can say.  Please see

Sorry, I misread your question: subdir-objects is clearly not
the answer.

To create all objects files into the Obj subdirectory, you can
build your project as follows

  mkdir Obj
  cd Obj

This setup (known as VPATH build) is fairly standard and allows
your user to choose where things should be built.  For instance
(s)he can build for several architectures in parallel this way.

Another way to for Automake to put all built files in one
directory, is the put a in that directory and build
everything from there.  POSE, the PalmOS Emulator, use such a
setup (at least that was the case two years ago when I last
built it).
