what about patching the readline makefiles?

Perhaps you should use the original sources from readline and
use new Automake to generate suitable makefiles.

Or you can hook into the process using readline-5.0/configure.gnu.
That shell script would add a fake distdir rule to readline-5.0/
and then call the real configure.  (With AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS, configure.gnu
in a subdir has precedence, if it exists.)

Or you could use 'makefile' which would handle 'distdir' and have

        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFILE) $@

for all other targets.
It might be laborous to collect the list for TARGETS, but you'll stay

Or you can make use of a GNU specific feature, and activate this hack
only if GNU make is available.  "make dist" is usually done with gmake
anyway, isn't it?

Hope some of these hints help,
