Nothing (in Automake) prevents you from having the sources of two
implementations of the same interface in the same directory, so you
would have to write this program yourself, which then makes use of
additional assumptions true for your code to find this out.

FWIW, my experience is that with C++ code this isn't all too effective,
with most of the code being packed into templated headers, changes will
usually require to recompile large parts of the code.
