problem is, stdafx.* and targetver.* etc. should not go into this library,
since they are to be used by VC project only.
I guess they have to go to EXTRA_DIST.
and, if I put tiny*.cpp to ..._SOURCES, the content in them will be exposed
in the library, right, which is not what i wanted? I only want them to be
linked, but not exported. Under windows VC, I can specify which items to be
exported, but using AutoMake, I donno how.
did not expect to receive a response so quick. thank you very much.

Don't add source files to EXTRA_DIST.
Do it like this:
# if you want them in libdir, no need to use pkglib:
include_HEADERS= ezcommon.h tinystr.h tinyxml.h
libezcommon_la_SOURCES = ezcommon.cpp tinystr.cpp tinyxml.cpp \
  tinyxmlerror.cpp tinyxmlparser.cpp dllmain.cpp resource.h \
  stdafx.cpp stdafx.h targetver.h
EXTRA_DIST = ezcommon.aps ezcommon.rc ezcommon.vcproj icon.ico \
  test.xml tinyxml.txt
There is no line length limit for automake, but typically, non-GNU make
implementations have such a limit (their input being required to be a
text file).  2K characters are safe.  You need to wrap lines with
backslash newline, not just newline, and neither with any spaces after
the backslash.
Do not put comments ('#' signs) in macro settings.
If you need to conditionally add files, use an automake conditional to
add them:
libezcommon_la_SOURCES += ...
HTH.  Cheers,
