I assume you mean that bar/baz.c is normally built as bar/baz.o, but if I
include foobar-objects in AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS, then *all* objects will be
kept in foobar/.  That's a nice feature, too.

the GNU toolchain is getting a much-needed overhaul.  I would love to see
the new release within the next couple of months.
