yes, it is.  Yet it can be useful in certain situations.

Perhaps you could place the library to a separate directory.
Then you'd use AM_CONDITIONAL(MYLIB, ...) in

  SUBDIRS += mylib

to control whether the recursion of make goes into that dir.

If the make won't recurse, it won't build BUILT_SOURCES there.

Yes, this is just another workaround, but perhaps it'll help you.
