Hi folks,

Would it be possible to rely upon $(VPATH) in
Instead of

        `test -f '%SOURCE%' || echo '$(srcdir)/'`%SOURCE%

something like this could work, too (not verified yet):

        `test -f '%SOURCE%' || (VPATH=$(VPATH); test "$$VPATH" || 
VPATH=$(srcdir); for i in \`IFS=:; set $$VPATH; unset IFS; echo "$$@"\`; do 
test -f $$i/'%SOURCE%' && echo $$i/ && break; done)`'%SOURCE%'

This would be a big improvement for supporting dependencies.
Currently I have to configure using --disable-dependency-tracking
to make VPATH work.
