No. Here is the relevant section of the Makefile:

am__objects_1 = windows.$(OBJEXT)
am_mpg_OBJECTS = MPGApp.$(OBJEXT) \
        exceptions/InvalidPasswordException.$(OBJEXT) \
        model/Password.$(OBJEXT) view/MPGFrame.$(OBJEXT) \
        view/PasswordPanel.$(OBJEXT) $(am__objects_1)

I should have mentioned I'm using msys and automake 1.8.2 with autoconf
2.59. I wonder if I will be able to test a newer version.

Let me go try it on Linux and see if it's better with a more up-to-date
automake version.
