You can try playing with VPATH.  But note that Automake uses VPATH for
$(srcdir) so you may find it less error-prone to just put the %.lang
files in $(srcdir).

the problem is that I have the lang files in some directories and I must be able to process them from the directory I am in now... with %. there was no problem... but now I guess I have to write each rule explicitly...
