automake dependencies, missing *.Plo files

we just upgrading to

automake 1.6        (from 1.4)
autoconf 2.53       (from 2.13)
libtool 1.4.2       (from 1.3.5)

and now the package won't compile anymore. I guess that the dependency 
mechanism has somewhat changed. 

The configuration of our software package is as follows. We are using an 
'obj/gcc_2.95.3-release-GL' directory to store the .o files and the libs (We do 
not like to keep them in the source code directory). The configure command runs 
ok and put the Makefiles in the obj/gcc_2.95.3-release-GL directories. The 
problem is that a subsequent 'make' command stops immediately:

make -C 
/servers/ockham_fs1/gloger/develop/LabFramework/obj/gcc_2.95.3-release-GL/. all

make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory 
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory 
make: *** [all] Error 2

Obviously it do not find the *.Plo files in one of the 
'obj/gcc_2.95.3-release-GL' directories. Those files are not created at all. I 
checked this with the find command.

If I try to build the software without this extra object directory the .deps 
directories are created.

The old automake/autoconf/libtool combination did not fail at all.

Any ideas what's going wrong?

Thanks in advance.
