`make -C' is not totally portable; I'd write

        cd ../cgdb/src && $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) $(top_builddir)/cgdb/src 

but then again if the package has SUBDIRs in the order that a toplevel
`make' would ensure correct order, I would not issue such a rule at all.

If you instead ever go to use a nonrecursive Makefile structure, you
could just add `../cgdb/src/cgdb$(EXEEXT)' to the prerequisites of this
rule.  Much nicer.  ;-)

And yes, nonrecursive Makefiles are very much possible and work well
with recent Automake versions.
