I was unclear

My question was not in terms of building and executable, but how to
imbed an executable command into the make, that will run when executing
the make.  We have a message parser that generates a header file which
is included in the actual source file.  I need to make sure our message
compiler runs prior to the aplication building.

I'm afraid I don't understand your question fully.
You would like to build an executable?  If yes, then something like
  bin_PROGRAMS = foo

in helps (don't forget to specify foo_SOURCES).

If you need to execute 'foo' after building it, you can do so in an
'all-local' makefile rule you supply (it's a good idea to have the rule
depend on 'foo$(EXEEXT)' in that case).

If you want to execute some command after building, installing, or
similar, the '*-local' or '*-hook' rules may be what you're after: 

Otherwise please describe in more detail ("when I do this it should do
that") what you need.
