i see from the previous post that you use a "manual VPATH" methodology.
there are two approaches you can try:

1/ undo the unorthodoxy (move auto* files to top-level dir)
2/ prefix relative paths (such as "../../") w/ $(srcdir)

probably 1/ is the best for minimizing gray hairs long term, although it
implies high (but one-time) rework cost.  2/ is best for diagnosing the
problem further, as an eventual stepping-stone to 1/.

wrt turn-around-time for responses, you can probably expect to find a huge
variance even among the same people.  e.g., sometimes i don't respond to mail
for months or years...
