About two years ago I asked the same question. Lars J. Aas replied
that "make dist" does not support this. The documentation (release
1.7.9) still says that SUBDIRS can only contain direct descendants of
the current directory (section "Recursing subdirectories").

I maintain a build tool (1) that determines the build order of
subdirectories automatically, in arbitary depths. The SUBDIRS variable
in the generated toplevel is full of slashes then, but I
never noticed any automake failure. Only the warning, which is why the
Confix documentation recommends using a flat hierarchy.

Any opinions?
