Try upgrading to current CVS Automake, it should show you the location
and the name of one file that is built with -c -o without libtool.

I see. Very nice! My assertion that libtool was used to build all objects in my project was incorrect. Libtool is used to build objects for libraries, but *not* for objects directly used to build executables.

For those curious to see the error message CVS Automake now produces, this is the message it generated for me:

tests/ compiling `tests/constitute.c' in subdir requires `AM_PROG_CC_C_O' in `' `tests/' included from here
