thanks for your reply, some more questions though:

Could you please elaborate? I'd be interested in the technical details on why
it is a bad idea?

It does compile now, and it does dump all the .o and .lo and what not
in the same directory as the sources - very ugly. This is exactly what I was
avoiding with the separate build directory and it worked just perfectly
until automake 1.14 came along.

Is there any way to tell 1.14 to place the object files into some dedicated
directory without doing an actual "out of tree" build, or in other words,
can I achieve the same setup that I had on 1.14 somehow?

Kind regards,
