Hi Joakim,

This happens if you have the same name on the containing directory and
in bin_PROGRAMS, like so
   bin_PROGRAMS = emxp_hw_bl

You try to create a program named 'emxp_hw_bl'.

   emxp_hw_bl_SOURCES = emxp_hw_bl/emxp_hw_bl.c

But that name is already taken by the directory (in which the source files resides).

If you think this is a bug, what do you think is the preferable behaviour?
