This is a GNU make question, or maybe a Posix make question, depending
on what you target.  In Posix make, the answer is no.  With GNU make,
you can use the patsubst function, see 'info make --index patsubst'.

Please note that automake won't really grok GNU make functions, so using
them in variables that are special to automake can lead to surprises.

Hope that helps.
