I want ot use automake to build a library for which the source has been supplied to me by a customer. The directory structure is something like:

src/main -- most of the source files are here
src/host -- a few host-specific source files here

In src/main, I have a containing something like this:

 libfred_la_SOURCES = src1.cpp src2.cpp $(hostdir)/h1.cpp

Everything compiles ok, but the generated contains

 libfred_a_OBJECTS =  src1.o src2.o $(hostdir)/h1.o

The problem is that h1.o is in the 'main' subdirectory along with all of the other object files. What's the right way to build a few sources from another directory into an application?

The only think I can think of is to have another in src/host which builds the host sources either into object files or into a library which could be referenced by the src/, but that seems like overkill just to pick up a couple of source files. Reorganizing the source tree is also not an option.

Wondering if there is a better way.....
