Yes, sadly. See:

Understandable.  And Automake 2.0 (which will enable subdir-objects
unconditionally) will not be released until that bug is fixed.

No. And I don't have plans nor time to do any serious work on Automake
for the foreseeable future.  But if someone wants to attempt a patch
to fix this extremely annoying bug, I will make sure to find time to
review it.  After all, this is the last real blocker for the release
of Automake 2.0

Unfortunately, in your particular use case, all Automake version are
currently broken -- even the one in the master git branch :-(
