This limitation is a problem in our case, since our build time is
already way too long for the typical user, so we do want to pre-build
as much as possible.  In addition, the files I am referring to (those
that are generated) are demo-files (that also serve as test cases).
It is weird for demo-files not to be in srcdir.

But the suggested workaround (running $(MAKE)) is probably just what
we need.  Thanks!
