In my case, the target is a floppy image (small linux distro). However, I
need to go in each subdirectory to compile all the applications and at the
end create a floppy image and copy all the executables into it. 

Example structure:

 -projects, ...
 -image, ...

How I build is : 

  *Run configure in app1, app2 and app3 via AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS(projects/*) in
the TOP
  *Specify images as the last subdir, so that it gets trigered last
  *run make... (recursion)
  *Since the image directory is last, it can assume all the apps where
compiled successfully.

However I do not need the image directory. I would like the main
to say that BUILT_SOURCES is floppy.img, but that this target should get
executed *after* all the recursion takes place. Just like make dist created
the tar.gz in the top directory.

What do you think?
