Maybe even try to use Autoconf/Automake and its Emacs Lisp rules,
instead of hand written makefiles?  I recall trying it for Gnus when
all lisp files is in one directory, but I have no idea whether it
works when there are files in multiple directories.  I'd imagine the
autoload cookies might be a problem.  Perhaps not worthwhile.
