Does it?  Since Automake cannot find
path/${WORKDIR}/, it shouldn't attempt to create
path/${WORKDIR}/, it should simply ignore the file.

What you could do is this:

* first run "automake" to create's in all static directories
  for which AC_CONFIG_FILES lists a Makefile (this will ignore 
  entries such as path/${WORKDIR}/Makefile)

* then explicitly run "automake path/${WORKDIR}/Makefile" to create 
  the missing

At least you shouldn't have to play a symlink game this way.
