If you've ever read Peter Miller's excellent paper,
Recursive Make Considered Harmful, the preceding section on the use of
subdirectories will probably come as unwelcome advice. For those who
haven't read the paper, Miller's main thesis is that recursive
make invocations are both slow and error-prone.
Automake provides sufficient cross-directory support (4) to enable you to write a single `Makefile.am' for a complex multi-directory package.
By default an installable file specified in a subdirectory will have its directory name stripped before installation. For instance, in this example, the header file will be installed as `$(includedir)/stdio.h':
include_HEADERS = inc/stdio.h
However, the `nobase_' prefix can be used to circumvent this path stripping. In this example, the header file will be installed as `$(includedir)/sys/types.h':
nobase_include_HEADERS = sys/types.h
`nobase_' should be specified first when used in conjunction with either `dist_' or `nodist_' (see section 15. What Goes in a Distribution). For instance:
nobase_dist_pkgdata_DATA = images/vortex.pgm
