I think you need to do the following as automake won't know about the subdir
- add AC_CONFIG_FILES([src/Makefile]) to configure.ac in the main directory
- echo "SUBDIRS = src" > Makefile.am
- echo "bin_PROGRAMS = main" > src/Makefile.am
Automake does already know about the subdirectory, see e.g.
in the generated Makefile.in. If automake didn't interpret src/main specially,
the line would have to be
Using a separate Makefile for the subdirectory completely defeats the point of
do you remember which package had this problem ? I'd remove AC_PROG_LIBTOOL from
configure.ac in this testcase as it isn't required anywhere, but this most
probably won't fix the issues in the original package.
rawhide's audit - but that's irrelevant, IMHO.
I'm reporting this because it is a bug and because it should eventually be
fixed, not because I need a workaround.
