So avoid VPATH.  If you use Automake 1.5, your are
allowed to list files from subdirectories in _SOURCES.

For instance put something like this in your src/

mylib_SOURCES = foo/foo.c foo/foo.h \
                bar/bar.c bar/bar.h bar/foo-bar.c

1.  You could just put a in this obj/ directory and
    build all what you want from here. (In case you'd like an
    example, POSE, the Palm OS Emulator, uses a similar setup --
    except it will build _everything_ in this directory.)

2.  However, if you're just concerned about not polluting your
    source files with built files, you could simply do a so
    called VPATH build.  Just cd to the directory you want to
    build your files into and run your configure from there.

    E.g., if your package is in ~/package you can build it into
    ~/build with: cd ~/build; ~/package/configure; make.
