Right, I can see how that would work.

Unfortunately, going this route will mean my project loses all CVS history
information :( If only sourceforge were using subversion. (Yes, I know
they plan to do so "real soon now".)

Just to be clear here, the *only way* to get automake to honour the
dependencies I specified in my first mail is to use subdirs to control the
build order?
