Selective inclusion of files to distribution

Hello people,

I have this directory layout:

---- subr_random.c
---- subdir/
-------- main.c
-------- gen.c
-------- ulp.c

My is this:

VPATH = ../
LDADD = -lm
AM_CFLAGS = -std=c99 -Wall -W
bin_PROGRAMS = ulp
ulp_SOURCES = main.c gen.c ulp.c subr_random.c

When I type 'make' everything goes fine. 'subr_random.c' is picked up in ../

The problem presents when I want to build a distribution tarball.
'make dist' will of course fail because it can't find 'subr_random.c'.
How could I workaround it ? I've tried many things, but all failed.

For example, I read about dist-hook and tried to copy 'subr_random.c'
from ../ to subdir/, but then I realized that this hook runs _after_
the $distdir population.

Best regards,

P.S. I could drop VPATH altogether and have ../subr_random.c  in
ulp_SOURCES but that would result in the creation of file, outside the
directory where the tarball would be extracted.
