I've implemented that myself, but only using autoconf,
not automake.  I'd be happy to post a description if
it's of interest.  The basic idea is to make sure
all variables are fully qualified so there are no clashes
between any Makefile fragments in the whole system.

(I also prefer to avoid phony rules in the innards of the Makefiles;
dependencies should be on real files. That makes these
complex things easier to understand - fewer long chains to
follow - and I suspect it helps avoid problems with make -j2.
Dunno if it's really key.)

Does anybody have some examples of how this works?

And is it possible to go to any spot in the tree and have a "make" do a
monolithic (non-recursive "make") build of the descendent hierarchy?
