Hi folks,

I would like to create the directories for some
$SUBDIRS as needed at runtime, e.g.

        SUBDIRS = mydir

        mydir/Makefile: FORCE
                ${INSTALL} -d mydir
                generate $@

Unfortunately Automake complains about the missing
directories in the source tree.

Of course the workaround is easy, but I wonder why
Automake tries to verify whether a source directory

(Part of the problem is that CVS doesn't allow to
rename files or directories, so I would like to avoid
checking in empty directories.)

Many thanx
