What version of automake are you using?  I am using automake-1.10 and
'./configure ; make check' works for me without having . in subdirs.
I just tested automake-1.9.6 and it was the same.

I am not offended by seeing '.' in the SUBDIRS but I was surprised
that it seemed to be necessary.  It works for me without it.  I think
the way automake constructs Makefiles that it tries to make this
unecessary.  If it is not working then it is probably a bug in
automake.  So I am interested in tracking this down from that
