This seems to be a real problem of automake and is also related to the wildcard
discussion. In a normal makefile, one single rule would be enough to handle meta
files like the qt moc files, but in automake it is a pity to write a perl 
script with 100's 
of lines to edit the's just to give rules for generating each 
single moc file
from it's corresponding h file. Maybe it would be useful to handle meta files 
automake (i think this is already done for lex and yacc, maybe it is possible 
handle meta files more generally).
