For what it's worth, this is what I do for some similar problems around
building Perl and other language bindings.  It's annoying, but once you
get the system set up, it's mostly a matter of remembering to add new
files to the right variable in

If you want to see a complex and complete example of this, see the for remctl:;a=blob;;h=50d8f808295fba2f0d9ae3490fe5611f077777e3;hb=HEAD

The important bits are the *_FILES variables at the top (and
PERL_DIRECTORIES), the clean-local, distclean-local, and check-local
rules, and all the rules at the bottom of the file.  Note that this is
much more complex than your problem, since it also has to integrate with
the native build systems of Perl, Python, PHP, and Ruby.
